Baroque Lace

We were given quite a selection to work with this month from Creative Expressions, one of the stamps I received was the BAROQUE LACE stamp which coordinates with the Spellbinders Decagons die.

I began by embossing a piece of black card with the Couture Creations Venus Crest Embossing Folder and then applying Patina Gilding Wax over the raised areas to highlight.
I stamped the Baroque Lace image onto coordinated card using black Archival Ink and then cut out and added to a coordinated matted layer, colouring the edges of the matt with black soot Distress Ink. I also added three tiles DREAM, IMAGINE and INSPIRE, adding touches of the Gilding Wax to the tiles.
A teal Dazzler has been added the centre of the Baroque Lace mounted onto a metal flower from my collection. I then added a wooden dressform which I painted black with a pitch black Paint Dabber, adding touches of the Gilding Wax to the top along with a Fancy Key Charm embellishment again coloured with the Gilding Wax.
To complete, I added a large double bow in coordinated ribbon, adding a further Fancy Key Charm to the centre.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
