Hello everyone. Welcome to another ramble round the desert. It's a bit of a grey day so that means CRAFT!!! Isn't it strange. Rain and grey days use to be just yuk. Now it's something to look forward to !! It's all just a state of mind.
I have been working on a couple of projects so hopefully I will get them both finished today. Maybe a double post day!! Over at Cheery Lynn they were looking for stitches, faux or real, on your project. Now you may or may not have picked up that me and the sewing machine have a bit of a love hate relationship. I did play with the idea making something with fabric but my attempts have come to naught. Didn't even get as far as plugging the machine in! It will definitely be making an appearance on my next post, if it feels like co-operating today, but here I have gone mostly faux with a summery type card.
I used green tartan paper from Craft Creations and mounted it on a gold base card. I cut a circle of gold card then used Cheery Lynn English Tea Party Doily to cut two doilies from handmade paper in yellow and orange and one from gold card. The handmade paper is quite thick and has an almost felt feel to it. I layered these, the gold doily I used just the center. In the middle I have some paper that I embossed with Do Crafts Mixed Buttons folder and then tinted with some brown ink. The topiary cat and the flowers are from Do Crafts Grown and Sown stamp set. The corner flourish with the bird is Crafty Individuals Victoria Corner. I added some faux stitching around the edge and also stitched on my bow.
