Now, I have to say, I don't sew much. Not much at all. My sewing machine sees action maybe three of four times a year, tops. But I LOVE fabric. Love it. I always dread stepping up to the cutting counter and hearing the inevitable question, "What are you making?" I always say, "Oh, is that what I'm suppose to do with this, make something? I can't just collect it?" So, of course, I couldn't resist making a purchase while I was there, and I especially love this Amy Butler fabric that had to come home with me:
This is a different card; no layers, no embellishments. It's just simple, but pretty. I stamped my floral pattern in Fresh Snow pigment ink, adding some Spring Moss leaves, just like the fabric. For the flowers I stamped the single sweet pea image from Year of Flowers: Sweet Peas in white ink and colored them in with my Copics. I wanted a light, sheer look. The leaves show through a bit, but I don't mind it at all. I like the airy look it gives:
I am going to look back at my fabric photos for some more card inspiration soon. And who knows, I might just actually sew something with the great fabric I bought!
