Woodware - Lavander and Lace

I am last to post this week for Woodware. Our theme this week is Lavender and Lace. I will be in Yorkshire this weekend with my friend Linda for our craft retreat. We have been several times now and it is always lovely to see the regulars. The retreat is run by Janet and Michelle of Lovin Ink. This time we are having a go at altered books. It's something I have never tried before. I love making little books but have yet to alter one!! If the results turn out OK I will post it on my blog when we get back. 
But back to this week's offering. I used two Stampendous stamps that I recently got ....the chandelier and a medallion stamp.

I stamped the medallion stamp with Versamark repeatedly to cover the white card stock then embossed with a pearl white embossing powder. This was my resist. I then blended blue and lilac pigment inks over the top. I love the little Colorbox Cat's Eye ink pads for this as you can really blend them well. A quick wipe over the top with kitchen towel makes the white pop. So this was my "Lacy" background.

 My main image is the gorgeous Stampendous Chandelier stamp which I embossed with a pearly purple powder.
To finish off a few pearls and some ribbon. And my flower was made from parchment vellum. I stamped it first with the medallion stamp and White Staz-on then punched out some flowers before building it up. All in all I thought it was quite "Downton Abbeyesque".

I have just seen the weather forecast and just hope that we managed to get to Skipton!!
Whatever you are doing this weekend I hope it's a good one.
