Her is my take on our earthy colours, I wanted this week to make something that I could link to the Dream It Up blog, but well, I don’t really use earthy colours so I made a phone cover for Judith (the Boss) she is getting a new phone soon so I have made a pocket for it. (I haven’t posted it to her yet)
I have used a very old Dreamweaver stencil Fern and Flowers
you can see that I have not coloured the flowers on the stencils only the ferns. That is one of my favourite things about stencils it is so easy to only colour the parts that you want. I coloured with an assortment of ColorBox Crafters ink pads and my ColorBox Stylus tool.
The other side I coloured in the same way but used the Leaf Branch stencil and over stencilled it.
The surface that I have used is craft Canvas by Roc-lon, which we are going to be stocking but it has not arrived yet. It is a fabric that thinks it is a paper, you can cut it with a trimmer or scissors and it very easy to use.
I have used a zig-zag stitch to attach some velvet to the back.
on the fern side I used free machining around the ferns. Then I trimmed closely to the zig-zag.
Then zig-zag the two pieces together, the zig-zag gives you a nice finish and no turning or finishing off.
To see what I made for myself you can pop over to dorrie’s doodles but I am not finished yet…
Judith sent me this card this week and it fits in with the theme, I think that she found it as she was wondering about recycling it as it was for Dave her husbands birthday a few years ago and as it is his birthday again this week I think she is planning to give it to him again.
Thank you for visiting today see you soon!
