A lovely friend has lost a dear relative this week and I have made this to let her know that I am thinking of her. The backing is some paper lace that I bought from Craft Central and its been sitting in a drawer as I didn't have the right occasion to use it, and now sadly I have. The topper was a bit of a mistake if I am truly honest but I was really impressed with what came out once I started messing about with it. I stamped the lily image with versamark ink, then used clear embossing powder on it. I then spritzed over it with some pigment powder mixed with water but I wasn't too impressed. I left it to dry then gave it a blast with the heat gun and then rubbed over it with a cotton wool ball. This removed a lot of the pigment but gave a nice sheen. I then took my chalks and again rubbed over the sheet with a couple of colours and this is what happened. I really like it. I then matted and layered it onto the backing sheet with the pale lilac card strip behind it and then placed a sheet of acetate over the entire front of the card to prevent the chalk rubbing off. The silver peel off and adhesive stones were added on top of the acetate, which was held in place with lilac brads.
