Belle of the Ball-et

The theme at AiFactory Challenges this week is Handmade by Me.We would really love to see your handmade embellishments.You have until 11:59EST on Wednesday August 3rd to upload your project using the link below. You do not have to use an AIF image but we would love it if you did and you get an extra entry. You can find some great images in the store here. Don’t forget to take a look at the DT’s fabulous work while you’re there.

For my card I’ve used the delightful Ella the Ballerina Digital Stamp from AiFactory.She’s been watercoloured with Distress Inks.I’ve teamed her with some pretty K & Co papers,including the quote,and some lovely shimmery pearlescent card.Now,I’m totally rubbish at anything needlecraft wise but one thing I can make successfully are these rosettes,either from ribbon or,as in this case,lace.I’ve topped it with another handmade element.This is the first ribbon rose I’ve ever made.I used a quilling tool to wind it round,twisting it every now and then.More stitching holds it all together.I did actually glue it to the lacy rosette tho’ *blush*
