Halloween may be weeks over but I am still finding uses for those Spiderweb Doiles. Chopped up and hiding part of it gives the card texture and maybe a vintage or gothic look without being too seasonal. I might miss them when this catalog ends. 

This card went together very quickly. My continual challenge to myself right now is to use up spare parts from other projects and make something new out of it. The leaves were from a previous Diva swap. The card base was actually from a failed card. I tossed the top layer. Even the tag was from a previous project. 

To understand, I have always started from scratch in the past. Every project. This is an artistic stretch for me to use what's in front of me. Call it a take on a limited supply challenge. It's just being creative with what's already in front of you. Kind of like making things from a kit. 

From another demonstrator, additional ways to use the doilies. 

Thank you for hopping by thus November. 

Happy stamping, Sandy
