Dreaming, just dreaming!

Toffee and lace….Mmmmmmmm! When I saw Julie-Ann's recipe this time at Dragons Dream TIO (Challenge 187) that's exactly what I thought! Couldn't get started straight away - appointments, meetings, outings….but when I finally got the time I couldn't find the stamp I wanted - Aaagh! what to use, rummaged and found this one - perfect!



I do love this image …….by Leonardo da Vinci …the stamp is one I bought at a show and have no idea whose! 
Painted my tag in Vintage Lace Fresco paint(how apt!)and masked her off, then dabbed Mocha Mousse(the nearest I have to toffee colour) through a TH stencil! The words - some from a sheet - Artistic Stamper I think, and then stamped up the Dictionary stamp and rubbed off the middle before stamping over the lighter words.
Inked the edges with was left on a sponge and added some vintage lace to make her shawl.
Thanks for a great recipe Julie Ann - I am putting this on view in my craft room to keep me calm!

Yep, I have stencil envy! And I have tag envy, too. You always make the most beautiful tags. This one is equally lovely, and the lace is gorgeous. Of course, I adore that Leonardo stamp. Lovely.
