Fabric & Fiber

Well I have just discovered how many times I have said "After the wedding" ho hum I have a list as long as my arm of things I have been putting off LOL no excuse now for not working through the list.
BUT first I did the challenge for JFF which is use Fabric and Fiber.  Now I have a love of fabric and lace particularly love  incorporating into my makes, I have sewn a piece of pink silk to a card and in the spirit of JFF right out of my comfort zone and inspired by Von, I have attempted to use fiber to make the flowers (Mmmm I must try harder) not sure I did right. I inked a stamp and popped the fiber onto it then placed vellum over the top and ironed it, I thought it might melt more than it did. More playing I think. I used zigzag braid for the stems and stamped the leaves and butterfly onto the fabric added apiece of lace for effect. Hope it isn't to cute. Please read on to see the fabric collage I also made and for those who asked me I have popped up a wedding photo. Thanks for taking time to look. Hugs Sandra XX 

I made a fabric collage and card for my Aunt who is 70 on the 1st of August (Happy Birthday Auntie Netta) The picture on the collage is her as a child. I have used antique lace and fabric bits onto Hessian.

I have snuck in a photo of the wedding as one or two asked for it. As you can see it was a fantastic and we were and are very proud.
