Lavender and Lace and Chocolate Baroque CAS



Morning Peeps, a scheduled post as I am back in hospital for another kidney surgery.................or might be out when this pops up on my blog, it was all very last minute hence I have been a tad quiet this week. But it's time for our new challenge at Allsorts and this week I am hosting the theme and have come up with 'Lavender and Lace'. Again we have two prizes on offer, some stamps and Sizzix dies so double the reason to join in.

My starting point for this one was a square of Fabriano dragged through a watery mix of distress inks (smooching seems to be the new 'in' word for this really old technique). When dry I stamped the entire piece with a Penny Black lacy background stamp called Floral Thread using dusky concord DI. A strip of lace, flowers made with Tattered Lace Fleurs system and some Ivy which is also from TL and finally a PB sentiment.


And added rather hastily I'm afraid so no details (always mail me if you want any details), my Chocolate Baroque shares which you will also find over at the DT blog today along with lots of shares from my team mates. All use stamps from the Mackintosh and Seasonal Ladies sets which Lesley showcased on Hochanda last month.






Please do pop over to the challenge blogs to see what my tea mates have made to inspire you and of course I hope you will also enter this weeks Allsorts challenge.

The colours are lovely too and I really like the Lavender and green combination. Your Chocolate Baroque cards are beautiful and I especially like the first and last ones.
