dainty

Today's inchie challenge is
to use the word Dainty.
***
Dainty conjures up images of
tiny ballerinas, lace gloves,
kittens, parasoles,
fine bone china,
Beatrix Potter mice, butterflies....
***
I used an image of a dainty Kate Greenaway lady,
some delicate cut paper
and covered with a layer of
a fine tissue paper pattern
I found in a 1900 La Mode paper
I bought on Saturday.





***

I think I need to get some cut inchies
as mine are never straight !

  6. Very pretty... and I think the crooked lines give it more
    character...
