The Theme is "Dance"
May is almost over, but here is my fabric postcard for The Postcard Challenge
It's a good change for me to work with fabric instead of paper from time-to-time and this challenge gives me that impetus. I stamped the dress with Staz-On Ink and an Inkadinkado stamp, then shaded it a bit with a Twinkling H2O. I embroidered the outline with embroidery floss and then embellished the straps with some beads from my stash. I made a flower from some sheer fabric I had lying around. Heck, ANY fabric I use has been laying around, I can't trust myself to go into a fabric store.
Then, I sprayed the whole kit and kaboodle with gold Maya Mist to give it a bit of a vintage feel (which I'm not sure worked) and then did the blanket stitch around the edges.
And THIS, on the 21st of the month, is my May fabric postcard.
