Lace and Fibers Challenge at Gingersnap

 
Hello everyone!  There is a new Spicy Supply Challenge up over at Gingersnap Creations - using lace and/or fibers in your creations.  Plus some blog candy from The Artistic Stamper for one lucky participant!  For my piece, I used some vintage lace trim and some Martha Stewart ribbon to accent this beautiful image of a Twenties Lady from The Artistic Stamper.  To me it looks like she is waiting and watching for her beloved to come back (must be the "Romance" theme at Gingersnap rolling around in my head, LOL!).  To make the scrunchy ribbon border up the side of the card, I first put down a line of adhesive (I use the Glue Glider Pro), then adhered the ribbon, scrunching it up and adhering small sections every inch or so.  Then I put it in my sewing machine and tried to scrunch it under the foot as I slowly ran a straight stitch line across the ribbon.  This is the first time I've done this, and it was easier than I thought it would be.  So go to Gingersnap Creations for some inspiration, get out those fibers, ribbons, and lace, and start experimenting and having fun!! :)
