I love making flowers, and today I have made one out of some dyed fabric.
I have provided a little tutorial on how it was constructed as I thought you may like to try this out yourself.
First though this is what I had to work from:
And this is my card:
Keeping within the light to mid tones, the muted hues have been 'grayed-down' to project a dusky and complex nature.
The embellishments are a mix of lace, burlap, a pin, bling, crinkle ribbon, plus you will notice round objects, these are buttons which have been altered with utee and distress powders.
(You can click on the picture for a more detailed look.)
The Tattered Florals die-cut flower was made with stained crinoline.
The fabric flower is in the centre, and this is how I made it.....
Dye up some calico in distress stains.
Rip a strip, not too wide and fold over.
Use a tool to to wrap around, then place on top of glued cardstock.
You may find it easier to use a glue gun if you are dextrous and nimble fingered, I am not and I have glue everywhere but where I need it, so I find this way is easier for me.
I made a few for future projects!
We would love you to join in this week, there are more fabric beauties that my teamies have made here.
Have a great weekend,
