Fabric Fields

Hi everyone. As it's Mother's Day today I thought I'd take this opportunity to wish my mum a Happy Mother's Day and share her card with you.


It's something a bit different but I hope she'll appreciate it.

The background uses Barbara Gray's Fabric Fields technique that was the project in issue 100 of the New Design Club. I thought it would work well with the Scarecrow stamps which I love.

It's an easy card to make but it did take rather a long time. The first thing I did was stamp and mask off the scarecrow. Then, using the Fabric Fields 2 mask, I masked off each section of the field and filled it in. I used a variety of methods for this; some sections were stamped and the backgrounds coloured with ink applied with a brush and sponge, others were coloured in with Spectrum Noir pencils.


I used Barbara's instructions as a guide and added my own twist.

As the fields are so busy I kept the scarecrow really simple, just adding some grey to his jacket.


To finish it off I added some mats and a sentiment that I printed out myself.

Stamps and Mask Used
Branch from the Remountable Birdhouse Set
Roses from Elegant Ladies Set
The Daisy is NDC99

I'll blog the card I made for my mother-in-law later in the week. It's a bit more traditional, although still quite brightly coloured.
