Hi friends! How many of you participated in Papertrey Ink's Stamp-a-Faire yesterday? I bought the kit to participate, but was at a stamp and scrap art show here in Buffalo with my stamping buddy Cheryl Rowley. We saw lots of new stuff and new techniques. We also spent a little bit of our pensions on that new stuff! LOL!! When I came home I was exhausted, but managed to get a card done.
I started with this tea staining technique. Before I left yesterday morning, I put some muslin, felt, and lace ribbon in some tea and left it in there all day. I used them to make my card.
The flower was made according to the technique Melissa Phillips explained. I used the Ruby Rose dies to cut four large flowers and two small flowers from the muslin. These flowers were stamped with a text stamp in cameo coral ink. I then cut a flower from tea stained peach felt. I also cut two leaves from tea stained green felt and a small button from tea stained ivory felt. I adhered them all with fabric glue. The button was threaded with peach floss. I mounted the flower on a burlap circle I just purchased in a package on sale at Michael's. The lace started out white and came out a nice antique color. The rest is pretty self-explanatory.
I hope to complete more of the challenges tomorrow. I've been looking at them and they look like lots of fun! Thanks for stopping by!
