Fabric Fantasy

Hi everyone and welcome! Jenny here to share a new project with you today. Before getting started, a big thank you to everyone who tuned in to see my first Hochanda shows and to everyone who took the time to catch up with Kay, Elizabeth, Cheremane and myself at the Port Sunlight show last weekend. It's always special to share our passion for all things IndigoBlu. If you missed out remember that the IndigoBlu 5th Birthday Open Day will take place at Retford on Monday 30th May!!! (details in the sidebar)

Now for that new project - I'm building on the stamping on fabric ideas I shared on tv, translating them to card making. Here's the finished card...


And here's how it came together; start with a piece of fabric, stuck to a card base with Fabric Slap It On and stitched to create a border. Then stamp the half doily shape from the Floral Fantasy stamp set using Wimberry Pie Acrylic Paint.


Stamp the large butterfly three times from the same stamp set onto more fabric using Wimberry Pie again, sticking them onto packaging using the Fabric Slap It On. When dry cut out, mould with your heat gun and edge with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.


Stamp one of the sentiments from the Floral Fantasy set onto a kraft card tag and layer onto a second tag using dimensional tape.


Spray a couple of pre-made flowers with dilute Wimberry Pie Acrylic Paint and allow to air dry; the paint will draw some of the green ink out of the lower layer of leaves.


Returning to the background, add strips of coordinating lace to the centre of the doily design and layer over the stamped tags.


To finish add the painted flowers, butterflies and some more coordinating flowers to finish the design before mounting onto a card blank.


Here are some close ups of the finished card;





That's it for today. Hopefully you'll see from this that all those stamping and stencilling tips and techniques work equally well on fabric for a card as they do for cushion covers.

For now take care of yourselves,
