I'm never at ease using sewing or fabric on cards - dunno why as it always ends up being fun - but it just is the case!
So this week I was overjoyed with our theme over at Crafty CardMakers of 'fabric'!
Now I ain't the kind of girl to shirk - I could have just stuck a fabric flower on and that would have covered the brief - but no, I don't do 'easy', I had to do Fabric (...with a capital 'F'...!) AND piece it too! LOL!
Never mind - I tried.....
Guess I need to do this more often - I clearly need the practice....!
My plaid fabric ( I now see I should have done a Scottish theme) is from my Hubby Nic's shirt! He was chucking it, I liked the fabric, so I de-constructed it!
The image is my own Eiglas 'Gretchen' lolling on a floor-cushion (I cut out the card 'cushion' and pulled the fabric though, padding it with a bit of tissue) with her teddy watching the tv. I've coloured her with those markers again....what are they called..? Oh yes! Copics! LOL!
I LOVE the background paper! It's called 'Ruby Berry Flower' and no other identifying names on the bar-code but I'm pretty sure it's Making Memories.
Lickle nod to Sir Tim with the 'Imagine' ticket top left!
