SISC #24 Lacing it with Stitches

Yay! It’s time for another StampInsanity Challenge!!! This time around Beth says, “We need to see some real or faux stitching and add some lace! We want to that girly girl side to shine!” Hmmm…girly girl? I guess I could give it a try!

Beauty-1

So admittedly, I am not a lace person…I’ll wear it when the time is right, but I don’t have bits of lace like I do with ribbon. However, since I came across the awesome packs of lace doilies at my Mom’s I have been using them a lot. They’re fab. I spritzed mine with Cherub Pink Glimmer Mist.

Beauty-2

Here’s Pierette…my fave StampInsanity image. I just love her, as I’m sure you know since I use her all the time! I colored her in with my colored pencils, relying quite a bit on that Crayola Multicultural set I mentioned yesterday. I also used my Design Spectracolors.

Beauty-3

For my stitching, I grabbed some rub-ons from American Crafts and added it to my sentiment which is from K & Co. (so is my paper). But take another look at the top photos again (you can click on any of them to make it bigger). See the bottom of my background paper? Doesn’t it look like it has big pink stitches in it? That’s why I chose it! It may look like it’s a couple of different papers, but it isn’t. I loved the unusual combination of patterns that’s all on one sheet.

Beauty-4

Here you can kinda see the glimmer on the doily. You may need to click on the pic. It’s really rainy out today so I couldn’t get the best photos. I also added some Rain Dots by adhering them with Stickles, which is cool ‘cause you can see the glitter through the Dots!

Wanna get Pierette for yourself??? The StampInsanity store is officially OPEN!!! Click HERE to start shopping!!!

Now it’s time for you to check out the rest of the Groovy Gurlz’s amazing creations! Then, get YOUR grrove on and play along! I can’t wait to see your creations! Lynx…especially yours, so I hope you play!!! Have an inspiring day!!!
