The challenge this month on Crafts on the Net involves a sketch and the order of the day is 'Fake it'. So here's my take with faked stitching, ribbons, lace, gems and buttons.
The fake lace background is a sample from a roller blind catalogue which I inked with VersaMagic Perfect Plumeria chalk ink to bring out the pattern. The gems are Ranger's Stickles and the buttons are chipboard. Originally these were blue but I inked them with the Perfect Plumeria before coating with Ranger's Glossy Accents to make them look more realistic. I cut paper strips to make the ribbons and used paper lace ribbon in cream to break up the colour.
