A little bit of lace


The theme over on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "Lace/Doily".  I thought about hunting down some lace to use for this project, but let's face it, it's not really in keeping with my usual style, so I put on my thinking cap and pondered on other ways I might meet the challenge.  I finally decided to use paper string to lace (geddit?) together the panels of this travel themed piece.


Some of the panels are from the Destinations paper stash and others were stamped with images from the Road Trip and Remnants stamp sets.  All images were coloured with Promarkers and the holes were all punched perfectly at the same depth by courtesy of the Crop-a-dile!


Supplies I used included:


Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week, just make something for the challenge and you could the winner! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try? At the very least why not head over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other members of the design team have interpreted this weeks theme! :)

Don't forget, Simon Says Stamp have a great Facebook page too!  Check them out here!
