I fell in love with this stamp as soon as I saw it in the catalogue. It’s called Classic Doily (B1424) and it does remind me of hand embroidery. I was playing with our new heat embossing powders and thought this stamp embossed with gold would look pretty special. It does! But you will have to believe me because I forgot to photograph it before I did the next step… colouring it in. I had planned to keep one plain but the colours of the Shin Han Touch Twin Markers are so gorgeous I couldn’t stop colouring.
I began with 3 blue markers and then chose 2 neutrals to go with them plus the red for a highlight. I just used straight colouring – no shading or fancy stuff. I also left a few sections white for contrast.
For each card I used a different colour scheme. The doily has the look of mosaics and I love how it appears a little different in each colour way. To make the cards I used Black from the Basics Paper Fundamentals pack(Z1939) to frame the doily and then a co-ordinating cardstock. The red, green and purple are from Paper Fundamentals and the Blue & Pink are plain cardstock dry embossed using the Floral Embossing folder (Z1994). Gold shimmer trim (Z1985) and Bling Gems Gold Assortment (Z2023) added a bit of pop.

This design would adapt beautifully to a scrapbook page. I have some photos from a mosque I need to print to use with this stamp. What photos would you team it with?
