Lace at Totally Gorjuss

Good morning I hope it's lovely and sunny where you are it certainly is here on the south coast. As it's Saturday its time for a new challenge at Totally Gorjuss where this week we want to see you use lace on your project, it can be real lace or a lacy diecut / paper. I've been playing with my distress ink this week and decided to alter a beer mat / coaster.  I used peeled paint, dusty concord, milled lavender and iced spuce distress inks and a white ink pad along with retro dots and grunge flourish stamps from visible image to create the background. The flowers were cut from another piece of inked paper using the tattered florals die.

The sentiment is from a set at Pink Petticoat called Simple Sentiments once I had printed it out and cut it into a banner shape I inked it with iced spruce.
The flowers were cut from another piece of inked paper using the tattered florals die. I added a piece of cotton lace and a piece of lacy raffia under my flower both have been coloured with distress inks. the little gem droplets were coloured with a promarker to match the brad in the centre of the flower.

I would like to enter my mat into the following challenges:
Allsorts Challenge - Purple Passion
Crafts 4 Eternity - To Die For
Craftitude - That's Die-licious
Simply Create Too - Anything But A Card
