Challenge 5 at Artful Times

Wow what a good turn out we had for the birds challenge and some new followers so thank you all for taking part :)
This week it's Sam's choice which is to use ribbon and lace, very shabby chic but I don't do it well and I after reorganising the craft room (still not finished) I couldn't find much  .
The tag is cut from water colour paper which has been gessoed and coloured with neocolor 1, the face is paper clay coloured with promarkers and the lace coloured with distress stains, the mover and shapers manikin inked with peeled paint and stamped with SeeD  stamps
Other stamps used are Tim Holtz, Personal Impression and an unknown lace stamp.
Now of course you want to see what Neet and Sam have made Artful Times
Sorry I'm not around as much as I'd like to be but work is hectic at the moment as the shop is closing down, so I shall soon be a lady of leisure.

Love your take on the theme Von, fabulous images and colours. I thought I would have more time now I am not working - but with this weather I am finding it so difficult to get creating.
Take care.
