Imagine using doileys!

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!). ---
Stamps : Hampton Arts Imagine; HA dragonflies

Inks : Glimmer Mist Patina; DI Broken China, Dusty Concord and Black Soot

Extras : Prima flowers; paper doiley; purple brad

Love the texture of your doiley, brought out beautifully with the gm. I have a 'tattered angels' glimmer mist - wonder if yours is the same qua effect. Nice idea!

I have always loved using doilies on cards -- but I'll have to try GM on them. Lovely card! Happy New Year.

You made such good use of the doiley, my kind of gal!!! Lovely piece of art! A friend and I went out today for Christmas tea and brought home the doilies from the finger sandwich dishes, you've inspired me! Happy Happy New Year to you and yours!
