To A Wonderful Friend

Hi peeps, have we got a good challenge for you this week over at DCD are you ready lol, it's to use FABRIC on your projects but not just ribbon or trim, I must admit it got me thinking this one but I finally came up with this and I quite like it, check out the other girls work too  they are awesome,
I cut out the image on the fabric carefully, not easy I can tell you lol, and then used my Xyron create.a.sticker to add flat adhesive to the back then put it in place, edged with the usual stickles well I couldn't be different this time could I, the papers are machine sewed and edged with Distress inks too,
I also edged my flowers with a Adirondak acrylic paint dauber in cranberry, that went perfectly with the colours,
 Magnolia glass beads string, Martha Stewart frond  punch, spellbinders fancy tag die, Stampavie sentiment stamp and that's it lol,
Colouring, Copics'
I've been quite busy this weekend so I'll have to check back later for any challenges, and I'm at the hospital with my mum this afternoon, phew it's all go here lol,
Hope to see you there soon, can't wait to see what you come up with, hugs Liz xx

Hi, Liz. Stunning creation! A perfect work with Tilda image! Actually, I've thought to give a try to fabric for a long time but haven't done it yet. Maybe it could be easier to use Heat'n bond to stick fabric to paper, I did it sometime ago with good results. I hope your hasn't problems. hugs. Miria
