Lace themed ATC

For my ATC group this month we had to make an ATC with the theme of Lace.
I went searching the net for images of lace to get inspired and found these gorgeous lacy shoes which when printed in the negative gave a pretty blue hue to them.
Added a bit of real lace and some pearls then printed out some words which you might need to say to make sense of. That is a metranome on the floor by the shoes if that helps make my corny joke make sense.

Image challenge

I have not posted any of my cards for a while even though I have been making plenty.
So here is the result of a little challenge I set myself.
I found this image while looking for something lacy for an ATC I needed to make for my monthly group.
It is printed on photopaper then coloured using alcohol inks.
I came up with 4 different cards.
This one has strips of velvet ribbon with organza ribbon tied round it and the off cuts of photo paper used as the background.

With this one I printed the image again larger to use as the background. The actual coloured image was sprayed with Goosebumps Texture Spray before threading organza ribbon through the image and extending it over the sides.   Tiny diamantes were added for highlights.

The cardstock was sprayed with Goosebumps this time, the edges of the layers distressed and black satin ribbon stuck to the image. Black Roxx were added for texture in the bottom left corner.On the last card I printed the image onto coloured cardstock added some black grosgrain ribbon then lots of sparkly bling on the image.
