Echo Park Blog Hop with Imagine

Greetings! This is my second post for the day. This one is not part of the 31 Days of Halloween, but rather a super-duper blog hop that the Artists in Residence for Imagine are doing with Echo Park. So if you're here for my Day 7 project, please check out the post HERE. But before you do that, scroll on to check out this one. There are prizes up for grabs, so be sure to check out the Imagine Blog as well as the Echo Park Blogs for details.

I created my background by applying Dandelion and Tangelo Memento Ink to my brayer. Then I sprayed it with Ink Potion No. 9 to help the colors blend and to act as an extender to keep the inks wet longer. After I rolled the colors out on to watercolor paper and let it dry, I stamped the lovely doily-like image from Echo Park's Simply Sweet Stamp Set with Grape Jelly Memento.


I also received the super pretty Heart Doily Designer Die which I used with a true purple cardstock. But it needed something....and in rolls the super fabulous Delicata Inks! I added touches of White Shimmer and Celestial Copper. I love the shimmer of the White so much, that I even added it to the background that I created. I added my pieces to a deep orange card base and a simple button on top of the die cut.

I mentioned that this is my second post for the day.I would love for you to check out my other post, and to further encourage you...I used the Heart Doily die cut on that project as well! Please be sure to also check out the rest of the fabulous artists involved in this hop. All of their links are below. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Wow, I would never have thought to use these doily imagines in this way! Very unique and pretty. It's nice to see doilies used in a way that isn't related to flowers.
