Frothy, frilly, pastel confection

If you make beautiful delicate feminine pieces and I've visited you my comment will have probably expressed my admiration and wonder at how you do it.   Guess it was inevitable that I would have a go for myself.   The trigger was the Stampman's latest challenge Anything Tim.

Corrugated card run through Big Shot with TH Bigz die and painted with white Gesso.   Grunge paper run through Big Shot with Sizzix Wings and painted with white Gesso, then run through again with TH Water splash folder.   Nick Bantock inks blended over both pieces.    A small doily with the center cut out pleated and attached to corrugated card self adhesive gem stuck on.   Lace stretched across corrugated card, white paper roses coloured with promarkers.  Beads and glass pendant strung on wire which was wrapped round the corrugated card.   Finally a little bell with a blue bow added.  

Not as good as those I've admired so many times but hay we all gotta start somewhere.
