'Moth Maiden'

It's time for a new challenge to start over at My Time To Craft. Make sure you pop over & see what fabulous creations the DT ladies have made using this weeks challenge theme. Which is......


add some lace to your creation, either actual lace or lace doily real or die cut is great!

I decided to use an image I have had printed off for ages, but sadly not had the courage to colour her hair. Well after lots of practice lately & I myself noticing my hair getting better I thought 'why not give it a go'....so I did & I'm really happy with the finished result. But there is still lots of 
improving to be done! 

You can see where I have added another layer to the moths, just to lift their wings up.
I didn't want to add to much to my card, but now looking at it I'm not sure lol!
