One of my friends had a ton of small fabric samples from when she was in China and in a recent clear out she brought some of them to me. This piece sparkled and I wondered if it would work on a card. Obviously it did and here is what I made using it.
Having decided on the fabric I made the rest of the elements using grays and silvers. Taking some scrap pieces of a subtle silver CS I added the fabric to a larger piece and die cut the flower using another. Die used for the flower is from Memory Box called Layered Periwinkle. The burst die cut is from SSS and was cut using a textured gray scrap. This die is a great idea, but challenging to cut and I had to try a few times before it cut cleanly. I added it to the fabric layer and then carried on with assembling the flower. It needed a bit of additional colour to stand out so I used a gray Sakura Glaze pen around the edges of the petals and along the veins and that was just enough to make it work the way I wanted. The sentiment is from MFT and was heat embossed in black. I added the entire panel to a slate gray card front, and the photo doesn’t do it justice as it is quite stunning in R.L. Have a fun day everyone and thanks for taking a look.
