Fashionable Stamping Challenges Design Team!

I was just so excited and honored when I was invited to be part of the DT for Fashionable Stamping Challenges! Not only do I love their challenges, but what an awesome group of creative and fashionalbe ladies to be working with! Thank you so much Shirley for giving me this opportunity to be part of the Design Team at Fashionable Stamping Challenges! Please stop by FSC, have a look and we would love to see you join in the challenges.  I know I sure hope to see you there - pretty please with a cherry on top!   This is also going over for a visit to Beverly's Pink Saturday!
Here is my first project as part of the DT! The current challenge is for "Ribbon and Lace" with no digi images! For my ribbon and lace, I used double sided tape to do a two step burnished glitter lace design on ribbon and paper. The butterflies from Cheery Lynn Designs, were cut from white paper that had been stamped and heat embossed. I then gave them a spray with Glimmer Mist and I wish you could see the iridescent effect. You don't have to heat emboss those gorgeous butterflies, but it just adds that extra layer of texture. All panels were stamped and distressed. The bookmark was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and then highlighted. I cut the edges using a Tim Holtz on the edge die and added pure silk ribbons.
This started out as a practice piece. I first painted the precut coaster with Gleams, let it dry! Added my double sided tape (Sookwang or Scor tape) over the entire piece and trimmed the rounded corners. I centered my lace over the tape and then placed the protective sheet cover (from the tape) over the entire piece. Run a brayer, credit card over the covered lace. This makes sure the lace is secure and the glitter will stay where you want it. Since I wanted the lace design to remain white, I first used my red glitter. Sprinkle the red glitter and gently brush off, then burnish with your finger. Gently remove your lace trim and add the second color of glitter. For the coaster only, I added two coats of a glossy varnish and then added several layers of UTEE. It looks like a tile!

I want to say first of all what an privilege it is to be on the same DT as you. You have talent in abundance and any DT is lucky to have you representing them.
I adore the colours of your card, the gentleness of it. As I said on the Yahoo Group you make me lol when you say you struggle with feminine pieces, you certainly do not, you nailed this.
Wishes
Lynne
