Awash with Flowers in Linen

Here’s the card we made at our Technique class.  I love the look of the flowers on the “linen,” but I’m not sure it works as well with larger images.  Here’s the other “Faux Fabric” card I did, and I think it looks much better with smaller images.

Stamps: Awash with Flowers, Teeny Tiny Wishes; Ink:  Jet Black Stazon; Melon Mambo classic; Whisper White craft; Daffodil Delight classic ink refill; Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write markers; Paper:  Whisper White, Pacific Point, Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry; Other:  Big Shot, Square Lattice embossing folder, Melon Mambo dotted scallop grosgrain ribbon, word window punch, Dazzling Details, cutter kit, Designer Buttons – brights, Basic jewels – rhinestones 

I don’t know why the Rich Razzleberry card layer looks a little like Cajun Craze.  Maybe because I took the photo at night.  Those are Rich Razzleberry buttons, too.

This is a little different from the other Faux Fabric.  For this I stamped the outline image in Stazon, then the solid image in Whisper White craft.  After the craft ink dried, I recolored it with markers.  This is much easier than bleaching, and a little quicker, too.  I think my bleach is old, but it took several applications to get the bleached images on the technique card light enough to color.  This was really quick and easy!

I added some Dazzling Details with Daffodil Delight refill to the flower centers after I put the card together.  I also distressed the edges of the stamped layer with the cutter kit distressing tool.  Since I did this after I embossed it, it was really easy to tear the layer.  If that’s what you’re going for, that’s great, but I didn’t want my card quite that distressed, so I didn’t do as much as I would have liked.  I’m happy with how it turned out, though, and it’s really simple to do.

That’s it for now.  I’m running last minute errands tomorrow before the Open House on Saturday.  I leave for San Antonio Tuesday, so I need to get everything from now until the end of the month planned and organized.  Nothing like waiting until the last minute, right?

Have a great day – and thanks for stopping by.
