So, Toffee And Lace. How hard could it be...but...I REALLY had to think about this one and I'm not really sure why. I was determined to find an alternative way to include the lace theme as I'm not really a lacey person as a rule. I decided to use a lacey leaf stamp set I've had for ages and I hope that will be okay.
In the end I decided to break out my alcohol inks. I used Butterscotch (for the toffee element), Terracotta and Willow to create a background by splodging them on a glass mat and swiping the tag through the ink. I used what was left on the mat to colour some seam binding. I then stamped an assortment of butterflies in black Archival Ink. Once that was dry I overstamped lacey leaves in gold and then over that I stamped the words Le Papillon and some smaller lacey leaves in white. I really love how it turned out. I edged the tag with black ink and left it at that.
you can see the gold better in this picture
I think I might just about squeak in for this challenge. Must do better next time.
