Pink Cat Fabric Challenge




Here's what I created for Pink Cat Studio's challenge to use fabric on a card. Now I worked at a fabric store for 11 years and so I've aquired a LOT of fabric! I first stamped the image from Lily and Tweet onto my card base.


I then stamped the same image onto shimmery fabric and used the same technique as paper piecing to add the fabric to the card.



I colored the parts of Lily and tweet that were not going to be covered in fabric with copic markers.


I trimmed the fuzzy fabric (it's name escapes me at the moment) over and over, bit by bit till it fit Lily's boa.


My final touch was flocking tweet, adding stickles to their glasses and adding the flower jewel to Lily's hat. I kept the card super simple and am so pleased with how it turned out!

I used SU!'s word window punch on the lower left corner, stamped the sentiment inside and highlighted it with a coordinating copic marker to make it pop! Enjoy!
