DCWV March Card Sketch Challenge

     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.

I just finished my DCWV challenges, too. It's fun how different stacks take us in such different directions. Yours is beautifully feminine; mine, not so much. I haven't seen the fabric, but it looks awesome. Thanks for the tips on working with it. I found out last night my son is in McKinney right now. Wish it was I, so we could get together! :o)
