Congratulations cards are such fun to make and today's card was also messy so for me that's a win win 😁😁. I used the the lovely new pearlized doilies as a mask to create a background .The doillies are pearlized on one side and plain white on the other allowing them to be coloured. I daubered coastal cabana ink through the doilie onto costal cabana card stock to give a tone on tone pattern. I then placed a piece of vellum over to soften it further. The other lovely thing about the doilies is that they can be cut apart to create different beautiful shapes.
