Fab'n'Funky Challenge #117 - Lace and Pearls

There were certainly plenty of animal lovers for our last challenge.  All the paws were out!  Wendy had the hard job of picking her top three so check out the Fab'n'Funky Challenges blog to see if you've been chosen.  We also have a £10 Lili of the Valley gift voucher winner, picked at random.  Don't forget to pick up your winners badges.

Now let's focus on our next challenge and the lovely Pat has chosen a girly theme this week...

Lace and Pearls

The DT were given some fantastic images to play with from the Digi Doodle Shop and whilst I haven't made a card, I have tried my hand at making a wall hanging.

I chose the Perfume From Paris Set 1 as it was really versatile and I liked that the bottles were all so different.  I used Spellbinders Grand Labels Twenty Three for the base shape and layers.  The digis were all coloured with Promarkers in the following colours:

Fuchsia Pink
Forest Green

I used Spellbinders Grand Rectangles to cut an aperature in the centre of the Labels Twenty Three shape.  I coloured the lace with my Promarker in Blossom.  The green pearls were from my stash and originally came free with something I bought from Create and Craft.  Bargain!

This time I used the Grass Promarker to colour my lace and also added it to the perfume bottle.  I bought the lace from my local craft shop a while ago because I didn't have any in my ribbon box.  I've used nearly all of it on this project so I think another trip to the shop is in order!

I cut the pink layer in four with my guillotine for this section.  The sentitment is from Lili of the Valley and I added some of the coloured in lace with my extra thin super sticky red line tape.  Every layer has been attached with mounting foam.  I also used the red line tape to attach the panels to the lace and then backed with another panel of the same size. 

The perfume bottles all have a touch of the MCS glitter and I added this with my Quickie Glue Pen.  I had been storing my pen with the nib facing down but this made the glue run out into the lid.  I've made sure they are all the right way up now!  The papers were from Pink Petticoat and came free with a crafty magazine a while back.  

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion Challenges - Challenge 106:  Die cuts and punches
Paper Sundaes Challenges - Challenge 116:  Anything Goes
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Challenge 159:  Freebie Week (Anything Goes)

Hope you are all having a great week.
