The list of materials this week reads like a cast of thousands doesn't it? I may have got a bit carried away!! The theme is "Vintage & Lace" & to start I have stamped a background with "Memories" & Triumphant Red. The strip at the left hand side is Ripped Lace printed with Moonlight White with the S/A lace on the top & halves of the paper doilies peeping out at the edge. I've punched the bodice of the dress from some ivory pearl card & embossed it with an embossing folder before sponging with the red inkpad. The shirt of the dress is layers of lace & there are 2 punched hearts behind the bodice for contrast. I have stamped the sentiment from "Something to Say" has been stamped onto a punched "Ornate Bracket" piece. To finish I've layered onto gold mirror card before attaching to the card blank & added the buttons, burlap flowers, pins & pearls. 

Here's a closer look at the dress.


  1. I spotted this on the Woodware blog and just had to pop over and say what an inspirational piece you have created. I love the textures, colours and sentiment. Creative Blessings, Tracy x
