Wow, what a week it has been. I'm so happy it's Saturday. Now I can go face the insanity at the mall and the overcrowded stores, the parking spot that is located the farthest most point from the store, the screaming children because the last Furby was just sold to someone else...OMGOSH...what was I thinking? I can't wait for MONDAY!
Oh, but there is some fun to be had today and it's happening over at Our Creative Corner. Our very own lovely Liliana aka "Lili" is hosting this weeks challenge and she has determined our theme to be...
Stitching and Fabrics!
Nature and it's natural colors really brought this Christmas themed card to life, starting with the earthy wood grained background. That is not paper, it's actually a piece of cream fabric that I've lightly painted Gesso over and then heat dried. Inking a wood grain embossing folder with Vintage DI, I've run the fabric through the folder and then machine sewn onto the card. The thread was actually white, but a lovely affect happened when I ran a dauber of Vintage DI over the threads. They really popped out nicely. The remainder of the decorations are simple sticks from the yard, hot glued to some greenery and a double bow of red and gingham and the gorgeous male cardinal sitting perched in the snowy mix.
More inspiration can be found amongst my talented teammates at Our Creative Corner so be sure to check out what they've all created with Fabric and Stitching!
We'd love for you to join in the fun.
Until next time,
Hugs n' Happy Stamping...
