Karen's just called me to check the topic for tomorrow's Bubbly Scrumptious Challenge as I mailed her a photo of 'Something Lace' I had made when, in fact, the topic is something completely different!! Somehow, between reading the e mail and writing it in my notebook, I lost the plot. Sorry about the swearing Karen and Jeremy when I realised what I'd done! Luckily though I did have something I made earlier this year that fits in.
So I shall blog this today instead on here.
I've used the last scraps of denim fabric I had leftover from the size 22 maternity jeans I bought in the sale. Nope, not preggers, nor never have been (sadly), but I loved the fabric so got the biggest pair I could. I decided to have a play and gessoed onto bubble wrap then stamped it onto the fabric and then coloured the gesso with ink. It doesn't show up very well on here. I've sewn the lace around the heart - very fiddly - and then stitched a bit across it.
I cut grungepaper flowers with a sissix die, gessoed them, embossed them and inked them and attached them with buttons, thread and paper flowers and finished off with a stamped butterfly and some gems. If I'd had any, I'd have stuffed some lavender into them.
The little one may become a bag charm yet, I'm undecided.
Oh well, I'd best go and check I've got the rest of the list written out correctly!
