Lacy things!

The challenge over at Caroline's "One Powerful Hour" is lace! Here are my cards. This one uses a Rubbernecker image stamp and a Hero Arts sentiment stamp. I stamped the gorgeous fifties gal several times on plain, coloured, and patterned papers, then paper pieced her. At the bottom edge of her skirt, I used a wee piece of lace I dyed with Nova Scotia weeds in my microwave oven. The theme over at Theme Thursday is people with hats, so she fits here too.


For this one, I used a Martha Stewart paper lace border punch paired with one of my favourite Crafty Individuals postcard stamps and a Stampin'Up sentiment stamp:




This one used a lace border stamp from Paper Bag Studios, paired with an old paper-pieced Anna Griffin hydrangea image.

Thanks so much for visiting today!
