pretty fringe flower
Friday, March 4, 2011
I finally managed to get some crafting done today, this one's just for fun!! Very pink, very frilly and very girly!! I nearly abandoned this card, it had a different flower on it originally and it just didn't look right so I left it alone and had a go at making these fringe flowers, I saw a great video tutorial the other day on how to make them. Here's the link (this lady is so talented at making flowers!!)
They're actually fairly easy to make, I used fabric glue because I don't have a hot glue gun. I used an organza type fabric because I wanted a frayed look. I added a little pink lace that I gathered to the centre and a vintage earring. It turned out really pretty!
I pleated some scrap tissue paper that I found in my 'clear out'!! and brushed it with white acrylic paint. The sentiment is from Anna Griffin. (Forgot I had these!!)
The dotty paper is from Prima Melody and the sweet butterflies are from K&Co Smitten. I'm addicted to cutting out butterflies at the moment! We're still enjoying beautiful sunny weather here, no rain at all, I can hardly believe it! It's supposed to last for a few more days, we're doing as much as we can in the garden while it's dry! Lots of tidying up to do and everything's growing!!
I'll be back tomorrow with a new card and sketch for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. See you then!! : )
