PS Lace Cardstock

Good Monday morning all! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Ours was busy, busy, busy. Can't wait for next weekend already so I can take a break :)

Monday brings a new challenge week at Practical Scrappers.

Challenge: Lace Cardstock. When I saw this I scratched my head and said "what is lace cardstock??" Really I did!! I had to Google it!! Then I went to the store to pick some up and decided I did not want to spend $3.50 on one piece of paper. I was certain I had a piece kicking around in my stash so I went back home and searched for it... So that is my lace cardstock story - now you know :)

I just started trying really hard to use shading with Copics. The only problem: I only have one Copic of certain colors. I know I need to have one light, medium, and dark but my budget does not allow for such craziness. In time though... I have a list of 26 colors that I want. Could take a while!

Here is my attempt at shading with one color, her hair looks a little funky, but oh well! I used Miss "Wavy Hair Girl" image:

Isn't she darling???

That's my lace cardstock - found after searching a while for it!

Card Ingredients:
Bugaboo image; Making Memories lace cardstock; Recollections cardstock; Oval and Scalloped Oval Nesties; Copics, Gelly Roll white pen; Primas; buttons; lace; and twine.



As always, don't forget to check out the amazing DT work as well as this month's fabulous sponsor:

This is gorgeous Deanne and thanks for showing me what lace cardstock is - never seen that before. The image is 'darling' and you've coloured her beautifully.

Love Lynda xxx

I think it looks great!!! Just use copics and then crayola crayons that are a close match to shade. That is probably cheaper :-) lol

Well Deanne you taught me something again, as I've never heard of lace cardstock. You did an incredible job of creating your card, with the adorable girl, and your amazing coloring, shading, and all the details and colors. Lovely!!
