Lavender and Lace at Flonzcraft Vintage Stamping Challenges

Good morning folks, hope you had  good weekend, I have a lovely crafty time and even better I've got this week off work so I can play in my craft room! My project this morning is for our new challenge at Flonzcraft Vintage Stamping Challenge where our theme is 'Lavender and Lace'. I love this theme, sooooo pretty! Who can resist Lavender and Lace? Not me thats for sure lol.


I've made a little shaped card using a cardblank from Craftwork cards. I inked with various purpley distress inks and then stamps the background stamp (from Chocolate Baroque, Fancy Flourishes) with Imperial Purple Versafine Ink. 

The focal image is of course from Flonzcraft, this stamp is from a set called Little Lady, its jam packed with supercute stamps and for less that £4 you really can't go wrong. Iv'e coloured the image with Graph'It Markers and die cut with spellbinders. I inked the edge of the die cut and then ran a gold krylon pen around the edge of the oval/


I layered the image up over some floral lace and some lavender seam binding ribbon.
Next I made some roses with the Britannia rose die and added some paper flowers from my stash with some pearl trim loops and a little butterfly which I'd painted with gesso and highlighted with gold pen. I added a bow and another rose to the top of the image to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

 A gem of a challenge: something new (new stamp)
Brown Sugar: ribbon or twine
Card and scrap: use flowers
Cuttin and Stamping: something new
Fairies Challenge: flowers and lace
Simply Create Too: anything goes
