CBC July ATC swap

The ATC swap on CBC forum this month is 'fabric'. A couple of years ago I had some fun stamping on evenweave material, so I thought I'd do so for this swap. However, I couldn't find the material I wanted to use, so I've used a high count aida, but it didn't stamp so well. I hope others in the group aren't going to be too disappointed.

I stamped the Laura Ashley flower vibrant violet stazon and the Anna Griffin background stamp with cactus green. As the flower really didn't show up too well, I've added an organza flower to each ATC - well, it is a fabric, isn't it?! I got these flowers ages and ages ago at Early Learning Centre - the lilac ones have all gone now - pity they don't do them any more.

I then frayed the edges and stuck on to rich purple stardream card.

I'm linking this for Mixed media Monday, where this week's challenge is 'a few of my favourite things' - past loves: something you really loved doing but haven't done in a while' - stamping on material
