Or show me your inky fingers! This project turned into an Inky Fête with ink everywhere, even my nose glowed in green and glitter at one point, luckily enough I noticed it before leaving the house.
This started with the idea of a Christmas wreath and using the TH Tattered Florals die, the larger flowers have been a bit too large for the cards I've been making and I wanted to make good use of them too. I also wanted to incorporate fabrics to my project, before cardmaking I used to sew a lot and I've been missing the fun of using fabrics.
I cut out a huge pile of tattered florals from a white thin fabric, coloured them with green Distress Inks, stamped some of them with TH stamps, sprayed with Perfect Pearls, added Stickles to add pattern effect and to harden some of the flowers (didn't want them to hang down). They are layered on a cut out cardboard circle and a few of them are tucked in under the layered flowers to add dimension. Then some copper wire, tiny silver stars, red wooden beads and red ribbon to create interest. And some more Stickles!
I'm entering the Show your Distress Inks challenge at Simon Says Stamp an Show.
Hope you have some great plans for the weekend, I'll stay warm and comfy indoors and catch up with commenting. Still got the cold and it's -12 degrees outdoors, so lots of tea and blogs to visit is just what I need.
