Queen for a Day

I knew you could color ribbon with alcohol markers, but I had no idea you could color lace, or maybe it never occurred to me.  I got the idea from Lisa at Crafting Belle who very kindly answered when I asked her how she got this amazing effect on one of her cards (this one).  I thought I'd give it a try.

For my card I layered up the lace...

I used Claire's Sketch at Sunday Sketch and Stamp #154:

And my colors come from the photo at Cupcake Inspirations #208:
