Leather and lace

I was invited by the lovely Anne Lise to join her as a guest - you can read more about this here.

I used the lovely 'leather and lace' image supplied by Delicious Doodles, colouring with chameleon pens and mounting on to a piece of embossed paper that was originally gold and I swiped it with a red pen, hence it has a  nice shimmer to it. This was then mounted on to a piece of faux crocodile leather paper. The paper on the right hand side is Black market paper society ebony & alabaster Breakfast at Tiffany's. All papers were from my offcuts box. I used a panel of faux embossed leather with a silver sheen - this is almost like a thick material - it's the last piece of some that I bought years ago at Ally Pally. This seemed just the right sort of card to use it for. the lace on the left hand side is a rub on with some Deco Time pearls added and also on to parts of the image.
