Lacy Flower

Another challenge at Moxie Fab World , inspired by trends Cath spotted in the new Card Creations, Volume 10, is doilies and lace.  I started with this beautiful piece of Webster's Pages paper, roughed up the edges, and then proceeded to build a lacy flower, first stamping a doily and embossing it in white, then die-cutting a smaller one, and then built a 9-layer fluffy flower on that, centered with a pearl brad.


supplies: Hero Arts pool layering paper as card base, Webster's Pages design paper, unknown aqua scrapbook paper, Hero Arts CG168 Circle Doily, Versamark ink and white embossing powder, Die-Namics doily die, PTI Beautiful Blooms II #1 flower dies, 3 of 3 sizes, PTI  Garden Variety sentiment, VersaFine onyx black ink, pearl brad, aqua organdy ribbon
