All things Lace

What a beautiful early autumn day it has been pity we don't get more of them, even more of a shame that we miss them when at work. Anyway I have spent a part of this lovely day in my room working on the SCD  challenge, this month it is Arches and this week Lace. I think we all must have a passion for Lace. I know my Mum has she has a gorgeous selection accumulated over the years. She is a well known miniature bear artist.. I persuaded her to join in this challenge which she did and I am pleased to say she really enjoyed.
On my piece I used my new silkies range of water based paint, called Indian Spice I used it to paint the base on the card it has a lovely shimmer. Then I stamped over it with my newest stamp (it is a beautiful stamp) although the ink I used (versfine black) did not sit well with the paint. I then added some antique lace to the top and side, I have had in my stash for a while.The gold butterflies and a lace border which I inked with TH to finish. Keep the fabulous challenges coming DT.
