And this is the card I made.
I've never been a fan of doilies, because I've always thought of them as the sticky piece of paper stuck to the bottom of my afternoon tea snacks. When I first started seeing them on cards, I was a bit surprised.
I received some doilies in a card kit a while back and they've been laying in my embellishment drawer since. When I saw this week's sketch on MFT I thought of the doilies instantly.
At first I left the doily white, but it blended into the background and got lost. So I thought by adding some Distress Ink to it it would make it stand out more. It did the trick but I'm not sure I like the dirty-looking doily... I think I'm gonna need more practice incorporating doilies in my cards.
The images and sentiment on this card came from the DC Contempo Cage stamp set by My Favorite Things.
I stamped the little bird on a light pink pattern paper, the wings on a green pattern paper and paper pieced them together to give it some dimension.
