Hello, Doily Card

I wanted to play around with the new "Hello, Doily" stamp and at the same time I thought I would use the 4th stamp in the "Easy Events" set.  I have the clear mount set so I have two DVD type cases with the stamps in them.  There are 4 images in each case.  I have now finished one case!! I'm half way there to meeting my challenge of using every image in a set!  Pretty good for me.

Ok, let's talk about my card now!  I used Very Vanilla card stock and I embossed the "Hello, Doily" image on it using Very Vanilla craft ink.  I used clear embossing powder and heat set it.  Once I was done with that I took a sponge dauber and colored in the details of the doily with Soft Suede ink.  I lightly filled in the open areas on the card stock.

I didn't have any current Soft Suede ribbon so I used the backside of some dotted ribbon that I had.  I have a nice size wish list of accessories that I need and ribbon is on it!!

I took some Dimensionals and set the image piece in place with them.  It looks SO much better in person!  When I sat down with this stamped image, I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. Since the doily wasn't all that colorful, nor the background, I was thinking of just stamping the image in Soft Suede and leaving it like that.  But once I stamped it I kept seeing the "Pool Party" color for the bird and the next thing I knew I was coloring in the adorable clock.  The words attached to this image (which I taped off) was "hello".    I didn't work them into the front of the card.  I just left it blank, that way it can be used for several occasions.  

I had a lot of fun making this card.  This doily image is fun to stamp like that and use sponges to bring out the detail.  I have loved every color I used on it.  I do want to make one using the Pool Party ink pad.  It's such a pretty color and maybe it will give it a vintage look!!  It's on my list of cards to make!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
Wanda

I love this card Wanda. It truly looks like a real doily. I was going to bring one with (doily) the next time I come to stamp so I could make this card but I see I don't have to bring one. Great card!
