Classic Doily

I fell in love with this stamp as soon as I saw it in the catalogue.  It's called Classic Doily (B1424) and it does remind me of hand embroidery.  I was playing with our new heat embossing powders and thought this stamp embossed with gold would look pretty special.  It does!  But you will have to believe me because I forgot to photograph it before I did the next step... colouring it in.  I had planned to keep one plain but the colours of the Shin Han Touch Twin Markers are so gorgeous I couldn't stop colouring. Shin Han Marker I began with 3 blue markers and then chose 2 neutrals to go with them plus the red for a highlight.  I just used straight colouring - no shading or fancy stuff.  I also left a few sections white for contrast. Shin Han Marker For each card I used a different colour scheme.  The doily has the look of mosaics and I love how it appears a little different in each colour way.  To make the cards I used Black from the Basics Paper Fundamentals pack(Z1939) to frame the doily and then a co-ordinating cardstock.  The red, green and purple are from Paper Fundamentals and the Blue & Pink are plain cardstock dry embossed using the Floral Embossing folder (Z1994).  Gold shimmer trim (Z1985)  and Bling Gems Gold Assortment (Z2023) added a bit of pop.
