REMNANTS 53

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, June 22, 2014 @ 9:01 PM | , ,

Hi there! Hope you had a great weekend! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! For this week's challenge, the theme is to: use those products that don't get used nearly enough! Perhaps it is a stamp or maybe it is a particular ink color. Whatever your particular product or technique is ~ this is your chance to get it used and share!
I was inspired to create a tag using neglected fabric:
Fellow DT member Ashli was my source of inspiration to create my fabric based tag. Admittedly, I hoard fabric like I do cardstock! After creating the background with ripped strips of fabric
I embellished with an embossed foil flower and butterfly
I love the added texture and homespun feel that the fabric gave to my project.
Many thanks for stopping by! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created!

The image itself is so special but teamed with the fabric it is as though you have allowed us to step back in time.
I am a huge fan of texture so it has been an absolute pleasure to visit from the lovely Marjie's blog to view this.
