Fabric flowers

>> Saturday, 18 September 2010

I'm going to post this card quickly before my internet connection drops out again. It was happening all yesterday evening and again this morning so fingers crossed I will get to the end of this post before it happens again!

A few weeks ago I bought some calico fabric with the idea to do something creative with it. I had a go at making some flowers last night and I'm quite pleased with the result. The flower needed a shabby/vintage card to go on so I came up with this;


The papers are from K & Co and I've been stroking them for a while, unable to cut them up! the lace is from Wild Orchid Crafts and I've also attached a couple of skeleton leaves behind my fabric flower. The metal brad is also from K & Co. Here's a close up of the flower. I did spritz it with glimmer mist but its not that clear from the photo:


I'm going to enter my card into these challenges:

Friday Sketchers - sketch

ABC - distressing
Cute Card Thursday - Tweet and a flutter

Have a lovely weekend. It's a fabulous day here so we going to make the most of the sunshine while it lasts.
