Did you watch the royal wedding? My husband and I travelled to the Wirral to see some friends and the men went out hiking whilst we stayed in and watched the morning unfold. I thought the bride looked so stylish in her beautiful dress and I have to say I think that the British do pageantry so well.
The weather has been too nice to stay indoors crafting but I've been wanting to try a new (to me) technique and decided to try and make a card for the current PTI Make it Monday challenge which has to be done today or it would be too late. I have been wanting to try stamping on fabric for a while but I always thought that I would need special ink so never got round to it. Then I thought that nobody is going to wash a card so it doesn't really matter if the ink is water fast and I had a play with some calico that I had in.
I used the Women of Life stamp set and the challenge this time was to hand draw a frame so I did this with a fine liner pen, and I finished the card off with some ric rak and a button.
I heat set the ink with an iron before matting the calico onto some raspberry fizz card and then onto a fine linen base card. I think I quite like the homespun look.
Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend.
