Woodware challenge - Green and Pink

Ohhhhh....my favourite colour combination, green and pink.

This is a card I made for a class at Grosvenor House Papers in Kendal.
The theme for that class day was called 'triangle cards'.

I have used one of my big flower heads JGS187 Fiona,  JGS341 mini flowers, leaf quartet JGS342, the verse is from JGS324 and my lovely
Happy Birthday textblock stamp JGS901 to make my own background papers.
The main images are stamped in black and embossed with clear powder.
The flowers and leaves have all been coloured with Tombow pens and I have
used a blender pen to mix the colours.
To create this shaped base card....cut an 8" square from pink card.
Cut the square diagonally in half then score each triangle and fold in half.


The card opened up to show the flower in all its glory.

Woodware Challenge - Buttons

Here is my take on this weeks Woodware challenge....a button picture.

I've used an old stamp and although it has now been retired there are still
some in stock at Woodware.
The stamp code is JGCL517 Hippy Chick.

I made the buttons a while ago and have been waiting for a project
to come along so I could use them.

The buttons are stamped onto different sized punched circles of white shrink plastic and coloured with crayons and powdered chalk. Then heated to shrink.

I have drawn on a piece of 'Fashion Fabric Square' from Woodware. These are 6" x 6" fabric squares of a course weave in a natural finish code number MR14819.
The flower stems are drawn with a green Identi pen and a yellow one for the petals.
Sew the buttons on with embroidery thread and I've added some mini flower buttons too.

Those of you who like sewing might like to embroider the stems and leaves instead.
