Doily Romance!

I'm still using the fabulous Doily die for this weeks project for Creative Expressions.... this time showing off all the intricate detail rather than covering it in paint!
( paint WAS involved, just not lots for a change!!)
I cut the doily from Kraft card, then did a little gentle sponging with cream and blue Eco Green paint....
A tiny bit of black splatter stamping just for a little detail, then I adhered the doily to the centre of a Kraft panel that had been painted, distressed and splatted too! I only used the glue in the centre, as I wanted the edges of the doily to lift and be a little more 3D.
The finishing touch was my wooden heart embellishment....
Sponged with the same paint, stamped and then covered with clear rock candy crackle paint. A Chit Chat sticker completes the look!
I matted up the Kraft panel onto a blue card blank, just to echo the blue paint already used.
Yes I know...I made a card!!!! How very strange!
Next week I'm starting with the texture paste that was part of my DT package...LOVE the stuff!

  1. Lovely Trish, the heart is a great complimentary addition to the wonderfully ornate doily. Tracy x x

  2. I'm not very good at seeing 'what it is yet'? So thought it was a canvas??
    Absolutely stunning colour palette & love your heart. As to that doily - WOW!! :))

  3. So gorgeous, Trish - the doily looks amazing as does the little crackly heart, and I love the colour palette.
