Hello Doily???


     It's "Stamp It Pretty" this week at The Kraft Journal.  I used a card base of Brown Kraft cardstock and layered panels of Light Kraft cardstock matted with black onto the base.  The panels were stamped with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.  I just love these doily stamps from My Mind's Eye.  (Geri, they make me think of you every time I use them).  After I embossed, I traced the outlines of the doilies with a grey Copic marker.  My friend Dana had this idea pinned to her Pinterest page.  It's from Nicole Heady.  I embellished the card with two 7 Gypsies Mini Receipts Mini Ephemera Labels, a Small Glassine bag and a sentiment stamped on more Light Kraft.  The finishing touches are a 7 Gypsies Gypsy Market seam binding bow with two Jenni Bowlin Garnet stickpins and a large button tied with Hang Tag string (Audrey Petit style).   I'm so glad I have so many talented friends to get inspiration from!  LOL
     So break out those stamps and come join us for this weeks challenge.  Don't forget you earn a chance at the monthly $15.00 voucher from Kraft Outlet every time you play along!
     Happy Monday!

OH MY GOODNESS - what a great idea for copics, I am just dying to try this now. I couldn't quite put my finger on what made this so incredibly different, until I read that. So beautiful, Tracy !!
