Shimmerz + Ink = Tea Dye Doilies...

The other day I was working on a project & I wanted to have a distressed looking doily
so I decided to pull out some of my favorite inks &  Shimmerz & experiment:
I coated my sponge brush with the ink, then sprayed Baby's Breath Shimmerz Spritz
and painted over the white doily:

this is how it looked when I finished playing:

it was exactly what I was looking for!
Then I sprayed a little more Shimmerz Baby's Breath on the tops of the doilies
and let them dry....

some I added pictures to, others I just left by themselves....

I was very happy with the end result.

and used them on this layout:

with a few closeups:

and...


all in all, I think it was a successful day mixing inks with Shimmerz...
sure made my doilies sparkle!

have a happy day!
Merry Christmas!
