Scanned Lace

A dear friend of mine, had the awesome idea of scanning a piece of lace using coloured card behind it. I loved it when she told me about it and asked her for some pics so she sent me 5 of them in various colours. I immediately printed the blue one and made a quick card.

I used the lace print as a background, added two scalloped strips of blue card (cut with decorative scissors) and a 3D butterfly clipart. The butterfly is not a 3D sheet, I just printed it 4 times and decoupaged the bits I needed for layering.
Finished it off with some holographic peel-offs and there you have it! :) -ready in aprox. half an hour.
A nice card (at least I think so) that will come handy one day.
Have a fine day everybody and happy crafting! Photobucket

Yes, I was excited with my friends idea too. I have that lace on orange and it looks awesome, must use it soon.
I scanned a part of one of my blouses, it has very nice shades of blue and greenish-yellow. I think it would look good as a background. I'll probably show it in my next post, maybe somebody will like it and use it.
