Who Says Lace And Doilies Have To Be White

 I was working today on another lace and doily card for the Moxie Fab World Challenge that ends June 4. LOL! After working on the previous white on white card I wanted to work with color. The cutting file is courtesy of Sylvia Fernie. I  resized it to 4x4. With all the delicate detail I think Cameron my Cameo did an amazing job. Next time though I'll double cut to make it easier to get all the little pieces. I did find a sticky lint roller helped in the weeding of the panel after I took it off the cutting mat.

These are my favorite summer colors. In fact my wardrobe is full of tops in this blue green and aqua colors. The yellow is reserved for shorts or slacks. I don't know why though I have never crafted with them.

The slits around the panel was perfect for weaving ribbon in and out. I decided to take that same ribbon and glue it as a border on the frame. I looked at the dots and thought I could use them to hand sew. My sister gave me some left over crochet thread which was the perfect color to use for the sewing.  The flower I cut off of a piece of lace trim and dampened it and then stamped pigment ink on it. I thought it was going to be darker than it ended up being. I backed the opening of the panel with a wire edged gold ribbon that I bought a couple years ago in a half price  bin. LOL! I don't know the maker of it but the spool says it is eyelash metallic. It definitely shreds into eyelashes which is probably why it was on sale. It works great for a backing material and I do have an idea of how to utilize the shredding in a modern art card sometime down the road. LOL!

When weaving with ribbon wrap tape around the end  of the ribbon which you are using to weave. It makes it a lot easier to get the ribbon in and out of your openings. Especially since some ribbons fray while you are weaving them.

My frugal tip is if you don't crotchet or knit ask a friend who does what they do with their left over yarn or thread. It can come in handy and crotchet thread can even be used in place of  Baker's twine on your projects.

Thank you for stopping by and do come back. My next project is a Father's day card for my son. Father's day is going to be here before I know it. Happy Frugal Crafting until we meet again.
