Embossing Lace

One of the new stamps out this week, is a large A6 size lace stamp which I thought I would show you with the Queen's gold embossing powder. In fact, all of the lace stamps heat emboss beautifully. I heat embossed it with the gold on a piece of chipboard, and then smooshed over it Spun sugar distress ink, and wiped off all the excess with a kitchen towel. Then I used grungeboard butterlies and dragonfly again using the Barn Door direct to the grungeboard, adding a  bit of Rusty Hinge to it for depth. The grungepaper rose I made using the same lace stamp ( oh joy , think this is my new favourite stamp!) and gold embossing it, and then using the same technique of wiping over it with Barn Door distress ink.
 The grungepaper likes embossing, but curling the paper needs to be done carefully to avoid cracking. The butterfly was overstamped in Archival black using part of the lacy border stamp. An ideaology pin was added to the centre and filled with Glossy Accents. The Dragonfly has a bead chip just in the centre. The letters and leaves are from the Grungeboard Nature set.
Don't forget to comment as you could be in for a prize of one of the new Alice stamps!
Have a creatively good day!

This is great, Jennie. I've been using the lace stamps this week and they are terrific. I love that Alice stamp - the expressions on their faces, trying to get the mouse into the teapot - brilliant!

Great stamp - and great take on it - I would've gone in a completely different direction. Which is why this craft thing is so interesting, huh!

I'm liking that new lace stamp a lot! Think I'll be heading first to your stand at Port Sunlight to buy one of those. I'd like to stamp it in white onto vellum for a real lace effect.
