Just Add Ink - Challenge #32 - Material

It feels like it's been a while since I have updated this poor blog. I have had so much going on in the last few weeks with my daughter's Deb ball, then our family all getting sick with the flu over the past couple of weeks. Then throw in a couple of birthdays as well.

In the middle of all that I seemed to have lost my mojo somewhere and would sit at my desk for ages just thinking of what I could create!!!

I kept thinking about the new Just Add Ink Challenge and decided that today was the day that I would create something. I cringed when I saw material as I am not an avid sewer (can't sew to save myself!!!) or have a lot of material on hand. I scrummaged through my old sewing box (yes I do have one of them!!) and came up with some lovely lace bits that I used to use when making knitted coathangers. My goodness that seems like so long ago, I even found one that was finished that just needed to be put onto a hanger!!!

Anyway, here is my entry for the Just Add Ink Challenge #32 which you can find here:-
It's hard to see in the photo but I have ruffled the lace under the polka dot paper. This is the lace that has the holes in the middle which I have hidden underneath.

Here is a close up of the lace that I have used to make some leaves underneath the rose but when I had finished it I didn't like it because you couldn't see it properly so then I just slotted the leaves underneath the lace.

Not sure if my mojo is back but I ended up being happy with this creation after it all came together although I wasn't too confident. Now off to enter the challenge.

Happy stamping,

Wow I love what you have done with the lace etc and it is way too hard for me ... I am allergic to all things sewing - can only deal with paper!!! Love your card!
