Fab'n'Funky Challenges #121 - Use Fabric

Hi Everyone,

What a fast week that was!  Your buttons and bows were in full swing last week and there were loads of great creations.  Check out the Fab'n'Funky Challenges blog to see if you were one of our lucky winners.  Don't forget to grab your winner's badge too.

So, this week we are having a challenge for all the avid seamstresses among us...

Use Fabric
You can incorporate fabric into your project in any way you wish.  I'm sure there will be so many great entries that I'm not sure how Ginny will be able to chose her Top 3.  We are sponsored by Digi Doodle Shop and you can check out their brill website here.

I have a little confession!  Okay, a big confession!  I haven't used fabric on this card - I got muddled up with the the theme so I'll make another card this week and hopefully get it posted before the weekend. 

I went for another Saturated Canary image for my card this week.  I'm getting addicted to these lovely drawings.  Krista is sooooo talented. 

This card had many layouts and cardstock choices before it finally came together!  I used the Spellbinder Moroccan Accents for the corners and the cardstock is pearlised.  The main butterfly was from Spellbinders Wonderful Wings and I used a punch for the small blue butterflies. 

My image was coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers in the following colours:

China Blue
Shocking Pink
Bright Orange
Indigo Blue
Sunkissed Pink
Pastel Pink
Blue Grey 1

I also used the Indigo Blue to colour the base layer for my topper.  I added a layer of pink holographic cardstock and a strip of the orange pearlescent cardstock underneath to give dimension.  The edges of the pink cardstock were punched with an EK Success border punch.  I filled in the white space by using the Bright Orange Promarker in a triangle of dots.    Finally, I stamped the sentiment in pink. 

Hope you are all inspired by our designs this week.  Do check out the other team members' creations.

Happy crafting,
Rachel x
