A couple of Doilies

These Doilies were easy and quick to make and cut using Nellie Snellen Dies.
Both measure approximately 3"

I didnt really have any ideas when I started. So I started by picking a small piece of glittered paper for one and worked off that, adding bits from my craft cupboard as I went along.
The flower originally started off yellow, but them I added watercolour pens to the edges and blended the ink with my water pen. The little centre flower is a chipboard flower that I coated with rock candy crackel paint then rubbed faded jeans distress re-inker into the top.

The second doily was distressed using Tattered Rose distress ink and a folded Dahlia flower was added.
The flower was made by folding 8 1" circles, then adhering them to the centre of another circle to hold them in place. I glittered the edge of the finished flower with stickles to give some sparkle.
