Use them or lose them #8 part 2

So this year I have decided to challenge myself to make a set of cards, scrapbook page or journal layout using each of my stamp sets as I know I have some I rarely use!

Something Lacy is this week’s stamp of choice and boy have I struggled.  In the end I made this tag using the stamp in the background.

I used Distress inks to blend the colours on top.  Then added some gesso before adding some bookprint and cardstock over a patch.  Then I added some grunge paste and the sentiment. 

I then added the hearts and painted them with a shimmer paint and the stars were glued down.  Then found the present in the JOFY stamps and coloured that with distress inks too.
Not 100% happy with this … nor can I see myself using the something Lacy again… I have far more interesting background stamps, this is just too prescriptive I think… so yes it’s another for the lose it pile!

Happy crafting!
