Lace flowers (and a winner)Posted: May 23, 2012 Filed under: Lace Flower, OLW, Penny Black 3 Comments
I pulled out the Lace Flower stamp and the Floral Thread background stamp again because they work so beautifully together. I am not sure what my colour inspiration was but it is possible a wedding could have a purple colour scheme with yellow flowers I guess?
I stamped the Floral Thread background first on a large panel and then added sponging in Memento Lilac Posies and Dandelion. I then stamped the Lace flower several times on the panel in Versafine Onyx Black. To create the tiles I cut the panel into 1¾” squares and then fiddled around with their positions until I was happy with the arrangement. The sentiment is half of the Blessings stamp I used on my last wedding card.

Thank you to everyone who left comments or participated in my first challenge. I was thrilled to look at all the different Mini Masterpieces and now have plenty of inspiration for more of my own. I did click and visit everyones’ submissions but a couple of your blogs would not let me leave a comment-sorry about that.
As promised I have a winner randomly chosen from the cardmakers who took up the challenge. Congratulations to Carol Lucas who made a cleverly framed Mini Masterpiece that had me wondering how she had managed it with only one layer. Carol, I will be in touch to get your address so that you can receive your Soft Wings and Music Background stamps from Penny Black.
The fun continues on Cheryl’s blog this week with her “Something Sweet” challenge.

Beautiful composition and colors Heather. LOVE IT.
Heather I just want to say what a HUGE INSPIRATION you are to me!
I get so excited by seeing what you do!
THANK YOU so much!
I absolutely LOVE your stamping style!
Keep it up girl!
Making the large panel then cutting and rearranging the pieces adds another level of interest to this beauty! I wouldn’t necessarily think of putting yellow and purple together, but it definitely works here.
