Time for another Card Sketch Challenge at DCWV.
I created this card using DCWV's The Pink Fabric Stack. I had never worked with their self-adhesive fabric sheets before and wasn't sure I would like it. But, I did and I learned few things about working with the fabric sheets.
~ Don't stretch the fabric when you pull the backing off. Work slowly and gently and it will work perfectly.
~ You can stamp on the fabric using simple stamps. I found if the stamp was too detailed it did not give a clear image.
~ Use dye ink - pigment and alcohol inks tend to bleed and spread.
What looks like pink lace across the middle of my card is really a sheer beige. When I put it on top of the solid, pink fabric strip it took on the color beneath. I really liked the affect, so I left it. The pink under the lace is the same pink as the birthday tag.
For the flags, I adhered a bit of the fabric to white cardstock and stamped the flag outlines. Then, I cut them out and adhered the flags to the card with foam tape. I added a green ribbon to match the leaves and a few pearls.
So happy to have given this Pink Fabric Stack a chance. I would certainly use it again and buy more fabric stacks.
Want to play along with us? There is still time. Check out all the details here: http://dcwvinc.blogspot.com/2013/03/march-stack-holic-template-challenge.html
And, here's a copy of the sketch we had to work with.
