Hello! Jenny here with you today with my take on this week's Doilies Challenge. I love this Nautical Doily. It's always a show stopper on cards. I decided to go with a nautical theme and my tag evolved from there.
I began by cutting an oval from the Oval Classic Silver Stackers. I sponged distress ink on the background and left the die cut in the die so I'd get a white edge. I then distressed the outer edge with some brown distress ink.
I cut the Sand Dollars and Starfish and colored them with distress ink as well. It's difficult to see but the Ships Anchor was actually covered in silver embossing powder and is metallic. The Ship's Compass (one of my favorite dies) is so detailed. It didn't need much to embellish it but I again colored it with distress ink.
To top everything off I used a seahorse left over from another project. It's one of the three dies in the Seahorse Family. Like the sand dollars and starfish he was originally cut with kraft card stock but was colored with blue, green and brown distress inks. To finish I cut a hole with a hole punch and tied twine to the top.
