Thank you so much for the kind comments on here and FB about my samples from the weekend. They are really appreciated.
People often ask me where I get my ideas from; this one came from an ATC theme - Texture. I'd been racking my brains for ages trying to think of something arty to do for it, (in desperation I even had the idea of brayering a picture on Clarity card and saying my texture was "Smooth").............
It's quite simple to do. I stamped the toadstools twice on white (cream for the ATC) felt and once on red with Stazon. Like decoupage, I sewed a second layer of the largest toadstool on top of the medium one as it is in the front. The pearl seed beads were sewn onto the red before I cut it out, as I thought it would be less fiddly. Once I done that I sewed it all together.
After a long discussion on FB about the merits of various glues, I stuck the completed toadstools onto the card with UHU. It did the job brilliantly.
The dies used on the card are from Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight.
