Lovely Lace

The new ABC Challenge is L is for Lovely Lace sponsored by The Paper Shelter.  This fantastic Steampunk image is It's Tea Time.  I love Steampunk and keep trying to master the style so I thought I'd have another go :)  Practice, practice practice!

She's been coloured with ProMarkers and cut out with a Spellbinders die.  The edges have been distressed with Tim Holtz Antique Linen and then I've added some Stampendous embossing enamel.
The backing paper is one from Lili of the Valley and the newsprint paper is a Tim Holtz Idea-ology.  I had to had cut both these papers as I haven't a die large enough to do it.  How does everyone else do it out of curiosity?

The important bit the "lace" was bought from The Ribbon Girl.

Other accessories include some Tim Holtz Idea-ology cogs, some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, some antique seam binding tied in a double bow (I've progressed!) I actually got this from Lili of the Valley but I don't think they sell any more, a clay heart and a resin butterfly from Live and Love Crafts.

I do like to set myself a challenge, and hopefully the whole Steampunk, flowers butterfly thing worked :)

OK that's hopefully you inspired now to show us your lovely lace
