Morning CLD friends!
Kianel here with you today to show you that a doily is not just a doily but that you can use it in many ways. I made a blue tag on which i used no less than 3 different CLD doilies: 1 to make Tilda's wings (oriental butterfly doily), 1 to make the border at the bottom of my tag (english doily) and 2 to make the big flower ( french doily and what was left of the english doily). I painted everything with ink and shimmer paints, embossed the tag and painted and inked it, finally add some embellishments and my Tilda stamp from Magnolia's last collection and voilà!
And here is a picture showing you all the shimmer and the "oriental butterfly doily" from CLD of which i cut the middle part to give Tilda those beautiful wings:
Here is a close up of the border i made cutting out the edge of the "english doily" CLD die:
The flower is made from what was left of the "english doily" CLD die (i.e piece of edge that i flipped and circle of the center which i used as a base) and the edge of the "french doily" CLD die that i flipped ang glued.
Picture of the same flower but showing you the shimmer and layers:
And finally here is a close up of the tag's background which i embossed using the CLD embossing plate called "hearts and rose leaves" (to get a better embossing, i also used the XL embossing mats and metal adaptator that CLD does for Cuttlebug users like me):
And picture of the same background showing you the shimmer:
I also wanted to show you this little basket i made with the fantastic "Big wicker" that CLD released for the CHA. So clever to flate (is that the correct word???) and i just love it!!! Ideal to put some candies on a birthday party table or just to offer some chocolates to your beloved ones!
That's all for me, have a beautiful sunday and see you next week! And don't forget to pop up here everyday to see the masterpieces of my DTmates!
Love from France, Kianel.
