There's a great tutorial on http://www.scrapperlicious.blogspot.com/ about using doileys and their impressions.
My doiley has very few holes, but lovely leaves, so I used the stamped waste. I sprayed it with patina glimmer mist, and then distressed the atc with what was left on the craft mat.
The Wednesday Stamper challenge is open themed this week, with a suggestion that you use your Christmas presents. The gm was a gift from my parents, who were rather bemused that I should want such a thing (I bought it for them to give to me!). ---
