I LIKE LACE

NOW TRADED
This week's challenge on Wednesday Stamper was to use lace, which is right up my street! I love using it with vintage effects so had no motivation problems with this one! Pleased to report that I think my enthusiasm has come back after a short dip ....

I used Basic Grey paper for the background, and stamped over it with my trusty set of stamps from Kelly Panacci. I don't think I've made an ATC without them since I got this set! The image is from a Paper Whimsy collage sheet and the words from a Tim Holtz distressibles panel.

I actually used two layers of lace and slightly antiqued the upper layer, which seemed to work quite well. I just love pictures like this of stiff little Victorian girls sitting beautifully still ... mine never would!
