The DT challenge for the Creative Inspirations Paint blog this week is Monochrome and to use ribbon or lace. I made a large tag and focused on layers and textures. I used some of the gorgeous papers from the Fabrications Classic Paper Pack by Quirky Twerp at the Digichick.

I used Coal Creative Inspirations Paint to stamp the motif border onto some black sheet foam. The stamp is from Victorian Fripperie by Waltzingmouse Stamps. I also cut out a little butterfly from black foam and painted it with Coal Creative Inspirations Paint. I cut another butterfly from some of the Fabrications Classic Paper.

I painted some mesh ribbon with Onyx Creative Inspiration Paint, I layered that on to some more paper from Fabrications Classic Paper Pack that I distressed with Coal CI paint. I added a touch of lace and a little black crochet flower under the butterfly.

Don't forget to pop over to the Creative Inspirations Blog to see the rest of the DT creations. Creative Inspirations Paint are currently looking to expand the Design Team, so if you're interesting in joining the team and playing with some gorgeous paints check out the details here.
