The challenge this fortnight over at a Passion for Papertrey is to use material. I thought about cutting a flower or two from my stack of old patchwork fabrics and then remembered that I have a whole pile of different fabrics that I use for embroidery and wondered how that might work. I tried stamping on loads of samples before I hit on this very fine antique white linen that I used for my Mum and Dad's Golden Wedding sampler.
I used Papertrey's spring moss bitty squares and scarlet jewel in bloom dp along with scarlet jewel card and ribbon. The buttons are all from the scarlet jewel jar but one looks very light in this photo! I'm thinking I would like a new camera but that will have to wait a while!
The sentiment is from the Delightful Dahlia set and the ink that worked best on the linen was SU's Old Olive craft ink. All the other colours just faded into the linen! I adhered the linen with a tiny touch of scorpal tape in each corner.
It's been such a beautiful day here, Spring has finally arrived - a fitting end to my week off. Back to work tomorrow - sigh....
