I hope everyone is rejuventated after our 2 week long challenge at For Fun Challenges! It seemed like much longer than 2 weeks!
Our Design Team at For Fun has a real variety of creations to share... hop on over to the blog and see! We have an ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE this week.... I used it to make a start on my Christmas cards for 2012 ...hang on, didn't we just celebrate Christmas?
The image I have used is a photo-printed vintage image. I cropped it and matted it on plain red paper. It then had more strength to withstand me sewing each pearl on individually. I then matted it onto a layer of damask patterned red paper. The band of ribbon is actually the centre strip of a wide vintage lace.... I cut the scalloped outer thirds off, for another project and had this left over... more of the red patterned paper behind it gives it just enough lift to hold it's own, I think. I like the contrast of red and white, so I didn't add anything more.
I am entering this creation into these challenges:
Christmas Card Challenges - #6 Lace (14/1)
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas - #54 Recycle Something (13/1) Recycled the Lace...
I hope you'll join us at For Fun Challenges for our new ANYTHING GOES challenge! Thanks for peepin'!
