Blossom




I've been wanting to play around with fabric again since I made my Shamrock card for Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 21...and I've had my eye on this FUN challenge at Embellish magazine, called Embellish Color Challenge with Fabric using red, green, blue & kraft PLUS fabric, of course. I noticed that tonight was the deadline to get my card submitted, so after dinner, I headed up to my stamp room and this is the result! I used Alice's Bonus Sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You for inspiration of my layout and I think it totally works! Oh,and Verve is having a March Parade of Projects to inspire you to have "Fun with Flowers."



The fabric was die-cut using the Scallop Square, gathered by hand and stitched with the sewing machine. I wrapped some yummy Real Red Polka Dot Grosgrain around the gathered fabric before placing my main image over the top.





Stamps: Spring Blossoms (Verve)
Paper: Kraft, Night of Navy, Real Red, Whisper White CS
Ink: Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery, Night of Navy, Bordering Blue Stampin' Write Markers
Other: Scallop Square Bigz Die, Big Shot, Real Red Polka Dot Grosgrain, Playground Designer Buttons, Linen Thread, Oval/Scallop Oval Nestabilities (Spellbinders)
