Belli Challenge #54 - Doilies




Hello friends!!! Today is Belli Challenge Wednesday!!! What is a Belli Challenge? Each week, Chrissy gives us a challenge that will use things we have lying around our stamp rooms or homes! With a constant flow of new things coming out, we tend to forget about the other things we have and they quickly become clutter!


Todays challenge is to use doilies in our projects this week. I think the heart doilies are the most common around Valentines Day. That is what I used to create my card for this week. In fact there is NO stamping in my card whatsoever. I had found a bunch of these cute Vintage Valetines while out at an antique flea market with one of my friends. So I finally pulled them out and used one. So I used one of the Vintage Valentine and just mounted that right on top of my heart doily. I then used my stipple brush with my More Mustard ink to make it look aged. Then I tried to use the little color there is in the Vintage Valetine to find a designer paper to compliment the image. I settled on Stampin Up's Close to Cocoa and Pink Pirouttes for the solid colors and Basic Greys Bittersweet Vanilla Fudge designer paper to just really set it off!!

I would like to say Good Bye and Thank You to 2 of our Design Team members. Lorie Ames and Sarah Anderson have stepped down from their DT duties in order to concentrate on other commitments that have going on in their lives. They will be missed. Good Luck in all your future endeavors ladies!!!

This card is stunning Danita. Love vintage cards and this one is exceptional.I liked the doily and the stamped image is just awesome. Well done.

Thanks for remembering me. It is the worst bushfire in Australian history. It bring me tears watching news and seeing how it has wiped out towns. Fortunately, I live on the western side of Australia. Nowhere close. we are safe. No problems.
Thanks once agin. very sweet of you
