Well I have finally caught up with the challenges on 365 Cards and what a great challenge they have for us today.
Vicky has suggested today's challenge and here is what it is
She suggested that we have a challenge where we incorporate fabric into our cards. Any piece of fabric will do, except for fabric ribbon, buttons, or flowers. Of course you can add those things to your card, but they won't count as the fabric.
and here is my card for today
OK so the Flower on my card is fabric and so are both of the Butterflies
The fabric is what I have left from a rather nice set of fat quarters I bought last year, I used the fat quarters to make a bag.
Once I had seen this challenge this morning I went to have a look at the fabrics I had and found these scraps, I roughly cut them out and glued each piece onto a piece of card before I went to work then when I got home I cut them out properly and the fabric is glued onto the card it has a little maneuverability so I was able to shape the Butterfly wings slightly instead of them being flat.
I have used pearls to embellish both Butterflies, some of my new LLB braid and Ribbon at the bottom of the card and a sentiment printed onto Vellum that reads
Just as the Caterpillar thought the world was over,
it became a Butterfly
I love using fabric and I am really pleased how this turned out, this is one of my favourite cards I have made so far.
Hope you like it
