Hello Doily

Kirsty is our host today at City Crafter Challenge and she has come up with a terrific challenge ... 
Create a project with a doily background ... the doily MUST be either stamped or doily patterned paper NOT a doily

Many moons ago we had a doily swap at City Crafter and my partner in the swap ... the lovely Chriss Blagrave sent me a doily stamp set by Maya Road ... which was just perfect for this challenge!


I inked up a couple of the doilies with Old Paper distress ink ... thing was I hadn't cleaned my stamp properly and there was a trace of black ink still on there ... hence the shaded doilies ... but I love it that way ... a happy mistake!


The beautiful image is a new one from The House Across The Bay ... I think this is my favourite to date
and that cute little vial was from sweet Kirsty


Our Guest Designer this week is Sylvia ... You all know how creative she is ... hop over and take a look at her project and those of the rest of our lovely DT and why not get out your stamps and join us this week ... We'd love to see you

Thanks so much for visiting me today 

Till soon

Love the card - and the green especially. It lends the card such a fresh feel... that's good in these muggy days we're having... looking at your card is like eating water melon!

I think the black paired with the distress paper ink was a cool touch! It looks perfectly aged and the shades are so pretty on the white cardstock. I like the tulle and tibbon you paired behind the vial. Very nice Ros!
