Doily Lace Background

Do you ever get done with a card and decide... Nope not what I wanted to do and tear it apart? That is what I did here... I loved my main image and was trying how to put it onto a card.
I decided to try a new ribbon technique and overlap the main image. Finished it took a picture and decided that I liked the ribbon and the sentiment but not with my main image. So I took it apart. Saved the bottom half of the card for future use and put the main image on a new card base.

Oh the magic of on-line. Makes it look like I ended up with two cards.

The stamps are all Hero Arts. I just received this doily stamp and and wanted to play with it so I had fun stamping it several times in several colors before I decided to overlay the flowers and add the background script. The background script is partially embossed in spots to give it the brown mixed with the gold color.

Thanks for stopping by...

  5. The ribbon on the first card is great but I think you made the right decision to change it.

    Your main image is exactly that now and I love the colours.

    Thanks for your good wishes after my snow tumble Sue.

  12. Both versions are really cool. I like that doily stamp. I thought you had actually painted a doily and pressed it on your project until I read your description.
