It began by a discovery of Vintage Violet Ink stacked in my pile of ink pads (you know, because doilies for the most part are vintage, right?), then continued by aging the bright white newly obtained paper doilies with a spritz of Vintage Violet and alcohol. Then I realized that I wanted to try something different. I wanted to see if I could make the doilies have a bit of a modern edge to them. So I cut them up and paired them with a graphic stamp and added a bit of flash. I sadly realized that I don't think a doily can ever look modern, there's just too much of a home-like, just-baked Grandma's cookies edge to them. Oh well, it turned out better in my head, I tried some new products and techniques, my fingers turned purple and I cut the doilies while watching my favorite shows (Criminal Minds and CSI:NY-awesome last night, by the way)...This is my first ever tall card, and is finished with a touch of doily lace trim on the bottom. Created for the Moxie Fab World Challenge: Diggin' on Doilies & Lace.
