Good morning.

Here is a card for two challenges:

The Paper Shelter #21 - Lots of Dots
CES Challenges #44 - Recipe

The recipe for the CES challenge was to include 1 image, 2 ribbon lace or twine, and 3 designer papers. Therefore I chose 3 papers with spots and dots for the Paper Shelter challenge.

I used a cream A5 card blank. I trimmed each of the layers to size and edged them with a gold pen to give more definition without actually using more layers. The middle layer of paper was stuck onto a backing card to give it more stability for wrapping the lace around it.

The main image was stamped on mount board with black Stazon, which had previously been painted with blue and cream emulsion paint. The bouquet was painted with acrylics. The stamp, by the way, was from the Simply Sweet set by Sheena Douglass for the Paint Fusion technique. When dry it was edged with gold embossing powder using Versamark ink. The gold twine was wrapped around and secured on the back and a small bow was made from the same material to mount on the lace. Both the image and the bow were mounted with Pinflair glue.
