Wild Flower Patch Wednesday #24....Lace & Sparkle!

Note: This is my second post for today, The Pixie Cottage is directly beneath this post



Hello Again!

I'm back with another Wednesday Challenge! This weeks Wild Flower Patch Challenge is to make a card that features Lace and Sparkle!

My summer/beach themed card features the Wild Flower Patch digi image, Sand Castle Violet. Violet is colored in with Copic Markers and I tried to created an illusion of water by airbrushing the background with two different shades of blue. I created button flowers by applying double sided tape to the back of the lace. I then proceeded to wrap the lace in a circular motion until I reached a flowery effect. The sparkle effects were created by adding gold and diamond color Stickles to the sand castle and half backed gems in the corners.
