Turquoise and Lace

The challenge over at the Craft Barn for this week's Calendar Challenge is Turquoise and Lace.

The biggest challenge was actually finding the turquoise colour. There are so many blues and greens and shades thereof that it was hard to find the right colour. Eventually, with the help of a turquoise ring I was able to find a paper to match!

The stamped images are from one of Claudine Helmuth's sets - stamped with a turquoise ink then overstamped with Versafine Onyx Black. The edge of the tag is coloured with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The lace bow has been attached to a Nellie Snellen Lacey Circle die and layered onto a scalloped circle in black. The butterfly is a wooden button I picked up in Kuala Lumpur and threaded with a piece of baker's twine. The ribbon is seam binding coloured with Tumbled Glass Distress ink.
