Good Morning Peeps!! It is Saturday and that means it is time for another new challenge at Our Creative Corner.
This week our challenge hostess is - Kristin Tierney and her challenge for us is Fabulous Fabric - Let's put aside our usual fabric embellishment - ribbon; and use fabric instead! Create a project using fabric as a background, an embellishment or your focal point.
I wasn't sure what to do with this one at first, I have purchased the Stampin' Up fabric but really haven't used it, so that was my starting point. I also knew that I wanted to make a flower, but what kind or how? I tried a couple of thinks and then finally settled on this technique, so easy peasy. I used a 24 inch long by 2-1/2 inch wide strip of fabric, folded in half and ironed. I then just did a running stitch down the edge and gathered. I then curled the flower around on itself and anchored my stitching. I added a pretty button and it was finished.
I added it to my card by using my glue gun. I used this sketch for my card layout. keeping it clean and simple so all attention goes to the fabric flower! I did use some fun lace I have been hoarding for awhile.
I hope you’ll play along this week and have fun with this challenge! Be sure to check out the rest of the OCC design team creations! To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave a comment linking to your project over at Our Creative Corner so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC.
Well, that is all from me for now, Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
