The Classic White Doilies from Freckled Fawn are crying out for some inkage (is that a word?!) and I couldn’t wait to try out one of my favourite techniques on them. Basically, smoosh a couple of Distress Ink colours onto a craft mat, spritz with water and then lay the doily into the inky puddles.
I heat set the doily and repeated the process a few times until I achieved the desired result – I didn’t want all of it covered with ink but just enough to give me a base for the sentiment.
I thought the large sentiment from Be Full was just the right size and stamped it with black dye ink onto the doily and also onto a square card base. I did this because the holes in the doily made it slightly harder to read the sentiment but by adhering it to the card with a couple of glue dots, I was able to match up the stamped impressions and make it appear more complete (hope that makes sense!).
I adhered a small twine bow to the top of the doily and added a cork star with another glue dot.
To finish, I adhered a couple of sequins from the Sunset Shimmer mix.
Thanks for looking 😉
