Just for fun

The new theme for this month at Just for Fun is Mixed Media. Please go check out the super examples.
This weeks challenge is to experiment, perhaps get a bit messy  [no problems with that instruction] trying different combinations of materials and media.
I started with the background using  Distress inks and  blobs of Starburst Stains, then stamped a random pattern with assorted stamps.. I embossed the die cut swirl .  Then the fun of making my card. There is a piece of fibre material, some bits of scrappy ribbon. The the buttons are wired. The stamps are from my new Tim Holtz set and lace from my stash. I even had a go making my own lace flower. Need a  bit more practise at this I think.
Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy  appreciate the comments you leave.

  9. Your lace flower looks fine to me and I just love your dress form. Love the mix of things you have used on this and the colours you have chosen blend so well together. I'd have to use this as a hanging rather than let it go to someone as a card - it is lovely - thanks for joining us at Just for Fun.
