Butterflies and Blooms Cushion Covers

Hi it's Elizabeth here sharing some of the cushion covers I made for Jenny Marples show on Hochanda last Monday. If you missed the shows they are still available on catch up on the Hochanda page, but be quick!

I kept the designs quite simple to show that you don't have to cover the entire piece, just a corner or centre if that's what you would prefer.

As you can see I love using the Dinkie Butterfly, it's such a beautiful stamp and the image stays true when stamping with the IndigoBlu paints.

The Lilac blossoms were stamped up using Mulberry Bush and Marshmallow, which are perfect colours for these flowers. The Lime Marmalade and Hunter Green blended together to stamp out the Laurel Leaves stamps beautifully.

These Dinkie DragonFly's were stamped out onto scrap fabric with the Kingfisher Blue, cut out and attached using the Fabric Slap It On, which is a fabulous product. I love the Lime Marmalade paint alongside the Kingfisher Blue and Hunter Green it really comes alive.

And last but not least my favourite cover made using the Dinkie Butterfly and the beautiful half Doily from the Floral Fantasy stamp set, along with Lime Marmalade, Kingfisher Blue and Pheasant Bronze paints, and a little splattering.

So Tomorrow (Saturday 7th May) the cushions will be at Port Sunlight for the Happy Stampers Show if you would like to have a closer look, or have any questions about the products used, the team will be happy to help. I'll pop a list of products used at the end of this post.

Happy Crafting and hope to see you at Port Sunlight,
