Crafty Little Fairies DT - Lavender & Lace

Good morning everyone - another week has flown past, it's Thursday, and so it's time again already for another Crafty Little Fairies challenge.

Thanks so much to everyone who joined the challenge last week - it's always so lovely looking at your creations.

This week it's the turn of the Pink Fairies, our challenge theme is 

Lavender & Lace

We are thrilled to be sponsored by Stamp and Create

Don't forget that in order to be eligible for the prize, you must use a stamped image on your creation.

I really liked this theme as I love soft lavender and lilac hues, and am also a big fan of lace ... together they make me think of vintage inspired, serene cards. Here's what I made.

I distressed all the edges of my  papers using my TH distressing tool and also distressed some soft lilac ink onto my image background. I also did a bit of faux stitching all around the edges of my papers.

Stamps: LotV "Pretty  Bouquet" and "Everyday Grungy Sentiments";
Media: Promarkers & Flexmarkers;
Papers: make unknown - a gift from my lovely friend Jennifer;
Supplies: flowers from various places including Wild Orchid Crafts, Hobbycraft (cherry blossom), The Ribbon Girl (spirals) and local craft shop (baby's breath); lace from The Ribbon Box; pearls from The Hobby House; cheesecloth from the Ribbon Girl; ribbon from my stash;
Tools: large floral oval nestabilities; Tim Holtz distressing tool.
