lace and pearls and graphic 45

Well over at the Fussy and Fancy blog a new challenge was set. I happened to receive my 6x6 g45 paper pad and thought that it would be apt for this challenge.

This is the card I came up with. I picked 4 papers and some cardboard toppers that  co-ordinated. I then rummaged through my die sets till i found some that i felt would really go together and set about cutting them out. Then I decided on a layout that was pleasing and distressed all the edges with walnut stain distress ink before layering down.

I added some lace from Sweet lilac flowers to background and to the main topper. I also stamped sentiment on it with potting soil archival ink. I glazed teapot with a clear sakura gel pen, went around all edges with walnut stain distress ink and then stuck toppers down.

I added some pearls and a button with some twine. Not my usual style of card but very fussy and fancy I thought.

Then i set myself challenge to create another card with left overs and here is the result. I was quite pleased with this actually. Less busy and cleaner lines.

Well i hope you like my offerings and if you do comments are greatly appreciated, Theresa xx
