Serendipity Stamps - Fabric




It is August already!! hard to believe, I know,  but I wouldn't lie to you : ) 



Today I get to share with you a card I created for Serendipity Stamps Challenge #58 - Fabric.  For this challenge all you need to do is add a swatch of fabric, length of lace or ribbon, or other fabric to your design. You can try stamping on fabric, or die cutting fabric or just stamp an image depicting something made from fabric as I have done with is darling little threesome! 

Each month there is a $20.00 gift certificate to the Serendipity Stamps store to one person who enters their project in the gallery!.  To qualify all you need to do is to include at least one Serendipity Stamps image (stamp or die) on your design!  You have until midnight EST on August 29th to link up! We really can't wait to see your take on this fun challenge!

50% off Stamp of the Month

The design for my card was inspired by CAS(E) This Sketch!



I started out by swiping three strokes of ink on water color paper in ombre shades of blue.  After that dried I ran the panel through my Big Shot to get a stitched border (more fabric theme... get it? giggles)  Then I stamped my image directly on to the colored panel.  Next I stamped another image on to a separate sheet of watercolor paper - colored my three dresses in different ombre shades of blue using my Ziggys - fussy cut them out.  I glued the shoulders and bodice only of my dresses down and then sort of turned up the hems to give some movement on the clothesline : ) It doesn't show well in the picture but it does look sweet IRL.

I will also be adding this card to the ALWAYS! fun challenge at AAA cards where they are looking for stitching! : )  Not only is there faux stitching on my card face but each delicate little dress (made of fabric) LOL is stitched with love! : ) that counts right!?!



I will also join the fun at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge where it is Anything Goes!!





Thanks a bunch for stopping by!  If you have a minute please take a look at the FABRIC that my talented Design Team members have added to their cards for this challenge!

Your card is graceful and beautiful indeed <3 I saw a challenge for stitching mentioned so might have to get creative as I got my sewing machine out and stitched on a card which is something I have not done in a very long time :). Always a delight to catch your cards on my blog feed.

You've found a type of stitching I hadn't thought of! And it's so right with the pretty pastel wash behind those gorgeous little dresses. Love it! Thanks for playing at AAA Cards.
