June Challenge at Creative Embellishments

The Challenge

It is June, already and that means it's time for a new challenge at the Creative Embellishments Blog.

Below is the inspiration photo and the twist this month is to use lace on your project.

My Take on the Challenge

I see a fairy gazing at her pet dragon in this photo and from that I was inspired to created a large tag of my sweet girl, Tisha.  For the twist, I used a piece of chipboard lace at the bottom of the tag.

I started by covering a large chipboard tag with design paper from Authentique's Purebred Collection.  Then I used the Distressed Grid Stencil to stencil on a pattern.  After the paste dried, I lightly brushed over it with Distress ink in Vintage Photo.  I also inked the tag edges with the same color.

The twist was to use lace on your project and I thought this lace chipboard border wa perfect for the twist.  I heat embossed it with Stampendous Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel, one of my favorite products for color chipboard.

I used a pair of corners, also embossed with Aged Ivory, underneath the photo, at the bottom left and upper right.

I popped up my layers to make the photo and sentiment really stand out.  Really, what greater love is there than that of your dog?  I am smitten with mine!
