Been making a swap for a friend and pulled out some card I made a while ago, thanks to some inspiration from a friend, Freyja, who some of you will know, who sent me some samples which I really liked :)

I thought I'd show you and tell you how it's made because it does look good and it's SO easy.

These are A5 size, so could be folded to make a card or cut up to use as backgrounds.  It doesn't stamp very well - though it does stamp - but it certainly looks rich and elegant.



It's just cheap gold and silver spray paint, from the Pound Shop, sprayed through lace onto cream and black card.  I did use some copper too but must have used that.  Doesn't it look good?  It's worth doing if you have any spray paint knocking about.  You can buy scraps of lace from market stalls, in little bundles and there are often some really interesting patterns.  Great for Christmas cards, too.  (Sorry to mention the 'C' word at this time of year!)

It's great isn't it Cath? I discovered this recently when I was trying to colour some lace with Glimmer mists and realised the lace had basically acted as a stencil.
