I have used a paper from a christmas paper pad by Rosie's Studio.  I sprayed a doily with Dylusions Ink.  I hadn't realised that an area that I had previously sprayed was underneath and it picked up some of the colour from that.  I thought it looked quite cool so used it like that - a happy accident!  The image is from Digi Stamps 4 Joy and is coloured with copic markers.  I also added some faux stitching using the copic marker that I used for the tree.

Oh La La
