Papercraft Star 64


The theme this week at Papercraft Star is Lace !

When I chose this picture I had visions of something beautiful and vintage, a little aged and very loved.

Sooooooo, how is it that I ended up with something Halloween ??  Is it because my birthday passed a couple of weeks ago, and now I am realizing I really don't have enough time left alive to use up all that Halloween stuff ?????


You can barely see the little raggedy tulle flower in the lace.  Just a bunch of circles punched out, and they scared themselves into a weird little spider web flower.  Spencer cranked out the cardstock through the Cuttlebug for me.  The lace is true vintage, still on an old piece of cardboard, found at a thrift shop.  The gray grunge paper from theHouseAcrosstheBay etsy shop is perfect for Halloween !

Poisoned paper - theHouseAcrosstheBay (047, Gray grunge)
Cardstock - DCWV, Recollections
Design Paper - (beware) My Mind's Eye
Poison tape - Tim Holtz
Stamp - studio g  ($1.44!!)
Lace - vintage stash
Net flower - handmade
Ink - Ranger distress

The Papercraft Star challenge runs until Monday, 6 am Eastern US time !!  Hope to see you there.
