CTC#224 Favourite Occasions Bigshot Project - it's gotta be lace!

Kia Ora- a friendly hello from NZ!
How amazing to have been part of Onstage for 2019. Weary and heading home now but so grateful for the experiences of this week.
I did still get a project made before I left so just happy to pop it in here. Be sure and check all the other projects in the hop.

Believe it or not, my favourite project is almost the same as the inspo picture- but I hadn't even looked at that photo before I started playing with these amazing Doily framelits.  I had a wonderful afternoon playing and this is one of the projects that just happened! The large doily cuts out the lace holes but does not cut the perimeter of the doily shape - you need the extra thinlit in the set to do this outline piece for you. So you are then able to create an amazing effect of lace which shows up so well with a contrast piece behind it.
I have teamed Gray Granite with Lovely Lipstick and Mint Macaron for this project. The inside is fairly simple, the font is just gorgeous.

So while I had the framelits out I made a few other samples. It really is a beautiful set of thinlits to use.

One of the thinlits cuts a beautiful lacy ring- you could use this for a wreath at Christmas I think. I did stencil the crumb cake base using white craft ink for these last 2 samples.

Next on the hop this week is Lauren

Don't forget we love to see what you create , pop your creations up on our Facebook page.

I hope you have a creative week and remember, 
"don't just post online,

cheers, Liz
