It's time for a new challenge at In The Pink and this week our theme is...
There is not much better, IMHO, than the combo of pink and lace so I was in heaven with this one! I also got to play with my beautiful new DP pad from LOTV - so pretty :-)
There are 2 bits of lace on here; the white one given to me by my mother-in-law and the pinky-brown one purchased in my local fabric/wool shop. I popped in yesterday to get some more thread for stitching and a whole rack of gorgeous cotton lace caught my eye so I just had to have some...and then I just had to use it!
I paper pieced all the sections of the dress and added a little shading with Copics, then sprinkled Frantage all round the edge...and on my desk/floor/myself just for good measure!
