I have been playing around with different ways to incorporate these sweet petite doilies in my projects and decided to use them for masking! I love the look of doily masking and I have done it with large doilies and spray inks in the past. Today I am using mini doilies and Distress Inks…take a look:
I created a layered background for this tag but these steps could be used on any project calling out for a little something extra!
Let’s get started…
Add some colour to a tag with a few spritz of Mustard Seed Distress Spray.
Add a few spritz of Brushed Pewter Distress Spray and let it dry.
Once the tag is dry, position a mini doily and add Evergreen Bough Distress Ink.
Move doily and repeat previous step.
Create a little depth by stamping an interest background image in black on to the tag. Here's a closer look…
Super fun and super easy!!!! Here are a few other backgrounds I created while I was playing with the doilies and ink.
Tone on tone layered doilies (left). Masked doilies, spray ink, stencils and stamps (middle). Layered doilies in two ink colours (right).
I hope you get a chance to try masking with doilies the next time you play with mixed media techniques! And keep a look out for the Doodlebug Mini Doilies!!!
