Try it on Tuesday - Add Some Fabric

Hello Everyone!

First, I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who took the time to visit me at Frilly and Funkie for my first step-by-step this weekend! I so appreciate the generous praise and I was just tickled to see so many wonderful comments! You are the best!

It's time for a new challenge over at Try it on Tuesday and this time our theme is ADD SOME FABRIC - (ribbon does not count as fabric). Here is what I came up with.


For the background I tried a bit of a NEW technique for my wooden planks by painting a pre-textured paper with DecoArt Tan Acrylic paint. I think it adds a little bit more interest with the criss cross grain.

I also tried a NEW technique for my roses and I am really happy with how they turned out! You will be seeing lots more of these shabby roses this year! Die cut used here was Joy Crafts Flower 1.


I stamped the butterfly using a stamp borrowed from my good friend Cec (CW Card Creations), last time she came for a visit. I don't remember what company it was from though, sorry. It was stamped with Ranger Archival ink Coffee, then I fussy cut it out, shaded it with Gathered Twigs and highlighted it with a white pen.

That beautiful doily behind the heart is a NEW die for me! It's from Crafty Ann and it's called Ornament 1.



I would like to send out a special thank you to JULIA ASTON of Create With Me who really inspired me with her DT make for the Fusion challenge (which I am entering). You should really give her a visit, she is a talented lady with a range of styles you will just love! Here is her card.



The little pillow heart was made by taking two pieces of fabric (also supplied by my friend Cec) and sewing them together. I stuffed it with batting and then frayed all the edges. I smeared a little texture paste on the front and stamped a pretty flower image. Stuck a couple of pearl pins in the top to make it a little more feminine.



I am entering the following wonderful challenges:


That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. I read and appreciate every single one! If you have any questions, please let me know.

  45. Pamellia, my lovely friend, your card is so beautiful! Using pre-textured paper for your wooden planks is certainly gorgeous, although the original way is equally spectacular! The heart pillow is a thing of beauty.. I adore it more than I can say. The texture past/stamp atop it takes it to even greater crafty heights. Your flowers... I just cannot believe how realistic they are. You work wonders with die-cut flowers and these are my favorites from you! Wow! Every sweet detail in this card is perfect. What a joy it is to see your creations, Pamellia! Your talent is a gift for us all. :o)

This card is so different, but equally stunning. Girl, you totally have to make tutorials for your flowers (I'm still waiting for "you-know-which-one" - whistling innocently) - sorry, had to do this. *blush*
