Cute Card Thursday #128 - Material Girl

The challenge this week at Cute Card Thursday is called Material Girl - Feature Fabric on your project/card. I love this challenge. If you have seen my blog, you know that I really like to incorporate fabric into my cards. Here is my card...


For my card, I used the sketch from Just Magnolia. Here is the sketch...




I used fabric in several areas. The jeans are cut from an old pair of my daughter's jeans. I have had piles of material laying around since my daughter was a baby (she is now 13). I thought I might actually learn to sew. No such luck, but it is sure fun to use on cards. The background is actually a piece of country material I had in my stash. The other "fabric" is actually ribbon.


I colored Farmer Tilda with Copics markers and with Distress Ink,. I am trying to learn to combine the two to see what types of effects I can achieve. I used my Copics Airbrush System to color my aster daisies with yellow and blue Copics markers.
Don't forget to stop by Saturday for the Sugar Creek Hollow Blog Hop! 

Thanks for stopping by today!
