I Brake For Lacey Springy Flowers...

I can only say that I am just in love with these images!  I got some new rubbah from sweet Bo Bella over the weekend and I just could not wait to get inky!

The main image, Kerr Jar, was colored with copic markers.  I added some extra dimension and interest by double stamping, coloring and popping up several parts of the image.   Most folks find this type of paper piecing too tedious, but I find it so therapeutic!  It's usually the time during my creative process when I am completely aborbed, and therefore, completely stress free! 

I wanted to create a background worthy of this fabby image.  My first thought was to use the September 2013 Technique Junkie tutorial, Distressed Rainbow Strips, but after all that therapeutic piecing, I wanted a simpler attempt with a similar result.  I also wanted to use Lace Borders which is not a large background, but several lacey strip stamps.  I could not be happier with my result!

I added each of the lace strip stamps to a block and then applied the following distress inks:  Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean and Spun Sugar.  Sounds like a recipe, no?  After applying the inks, I spritzed with water and stamped onto white cardstock.  I just adore it!

Make sure to say a happy hello to sweet Ms. Della when you go about shopping the IBFS Store.  And, be sure to save using my coupon code:  SAVE10JANE
