Waste Not Wednesdays wk9

Blimey week 9, how did that happen?!  As my lovely regular blog visitors will know, it's 'Waste Not Wednesdays' day, my little challenge to get me (and anyone else who wants to join in!) using up all that forgotten stash - stamps, papers, anything really that might be feeling a little neglected...




Apologies to all those who aren't keen on Miss Tilda, but I seem to be a bit addicted at the moment!  This stamp has actually been used... but only once just after I bought her.  I've coloured her with promarkers and flexmarkers, with prisma pencils for the shadow underneath her.  The papers are from an old K&Co pad.  The card base is cream - for once it's not just a dodgy photo lol.

I decided to have a go at making a flower from lace (I've got a huge box of lace that needs using), and I don't think it turned out too badly for a first attempt.  The fancy button in the centre is from a huge box of buttons that were given to me by my mum's hubby - they were his mum's collection, she was a bit of a hoarder so there's loads of them!  It started out gold and I painted it with some acrylic paint (bought in many colours and then never used), dabbed on some distress ink and sprayed it with iridescent spray & sparkle.  Added some more lace and some more of that fancy trim from the offcuts bag, a punched butterfly and a Pink Petticoat sentiment.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Oh, I almost forgot - if you fancy joining in this week using your own neglected stash, I'm going to sort out a little prize - as usual for my little challenge prizes it'll be a surprise until I announce the winner next week.  Hope to see lots of you playing along :o)
