Lovely Lace in Pinks and Browns

This week's challenge at Heart2Heart is to create something with a "lace" theme.  You can use actual lace, stamped lace, lace something up, etc.  The only rule is to use some CTMH product on your finished item!

I've had the Workshop on the Go stamp from Buzz and Bumble for a while now and only just ink it up.  I try really hard to use all my stamps as they come in - partially so I feel like I'm getting my money's worth out of my supplies (that's the frugalista in me) but also because sometimes your stamps surprise you (that's the artist in me).  The bottom lace panel on this card is a stamp that comes with the Artbooking cartridge but when I inked up in brown and repeated on the small piece, it took on a whole new look to me!
I used a combination of watercolor pencils, reinker and alcohol markers to color the flowers for this one.  

I hope you'll join us at Heart2Heart Challenges this week and create something "lacey" to share!  If you need to pick up a few CTMH supplies for your project, visit my online shopping site!

Stay crafty my friends!

I don't know why I never think to use certain stamps as a background until I see someone else do it. I love how you made the large lace a background stamp, and it compliments perfectly. Beautiful, Paige!!

Thanks Becca! I loved it as soon as the ink touched the paper. I need to do a 12x12 sheet like this so I can use it for other projects!

Paige, this is really pretty. Your flowers in the right hand corner almost look like cloisonné! I love pink and brown together!

Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog. I found my embossing folder at Jo-Ann's just a few weeks ago. I've been searching for ages for a cloud embossing folder. :)

I cannot believe the beautiful pattern this is with your color combo! Paige, I absolutely love the brown and pink. :)
