Echinacea

I have been inspired by Wanda's wonderful contributions on the PA blog and also by a lovely post on Lesley Ebdon's blog today.

I cut some cotton fabric, sprayed it with water and sprinkled infusions. Limoncello on my first piece, and Royal Blood and A Bit Jaded on my second.
I used the beautiful stamps from Jo FirthYoung JOFY14, and stamped them in Coffee archival.
On the first one, I painted the flowers using fresco....Tango and Yellow Submarine, and added a little Liquid pearls.

On the second, I painted with the infusions and added Liquid pearls.

Finally, a bit of machine stitching and a hessian background.



Much prefer my second attempt, and am entering them into the PA Fabric challenge.

  2. I love the flowers on both Hazel but the background on the second panel has turned out beautifully and I'm really surprised at how well painting with the Infusions turned out. I expected the walnut granules to overpower the other colour and turn it all brown but its fabulously shabby chic. I love them both and thanks formthe lovely mention. I'm honoured!

    Hugs

  3. Awesome cards Hazel, fabulous image and infusions colours. Cotton and hemp are great match with the images. I love echinacea, mine's are pink and white and bloom is likely now. xx
