I began by covering a Jumbo tag with Vanilla Fresco Finish paint by PaperArtsy and then pasted on some tea-stained lace, using Soft Gel Medium by Prima.
Next I Painted some tissue with translucent Frescos to create the impression of stained glass, stamping over them with the Elizabethan lady from Lynne Perrella, LPC031. Crafty Individuals' Lovely Lace, provided the background for my sentiment. I stamped the lace onto Toffee card using PaperArtsy Vanilla. I then delved into my stash to find some embellishments that could look antique with a little help.
And a lacy butterfly lands on the lady's curls. I love the intricacy of this fine lady's ruff. She certainly looks grand enough to be Queen Elizabeth the First herself! Each time I come back and use this stamp, I see something else to focus on and this time it has been that incredible lace. What skill it must have taken to create something so complex and beautiful.
A little paper ribbon added the finishing touch with some Sara Nauman script printed on it in Jet Black Archival. I added Florentine and Blue Sapphire Treasure Golds to the lace in places too.
Finally, a white lace border echoes the ruff, while the curled corners of the tissue are edged with Florentine Treasure Gold. Thank You so much for stopping by Magpieheaven today. I do hope you will have a go at your own version of Toffee and Lace for the Dragons Dream TIO this fortnight. We can't wait to see what you come up with.
