>Glitz & Glamour

>
Well,despite a few hiccups,two of these cards are ready to brave the postal system and travel to new homes.
The third (hot shoe shuffle) I’m keeping for myself!
The swap,organised by my Crazy Quilting Friends was “Glitz and Glamour”.

I hope the recipients are happy with my efforts,because ,honestly I was “stumped”…………….
until I remembered that Sandie some time ago had gifted me the Gibson Girl type figure,and the lady dressed for a Ball, and they gave me a starting point.

In both cards I’ve used a combination of silk/rayon velvet,gold brocade and an organza with silver hail-spots.

The “Gibson girl/Edwardian lady features silver leaf shapes and SRE flower on the velvet and micro sequins and flowers on the lavender satin.
Because of all the “glitz” I limited the seam treatments in order not to be too “in your face”.

With “Ready for the Ball” I added a few SRE rosebuds to the flounces of the skirt; and then just played around with the other patches.
Using reverse bobbin work and gold ribbon floss on the bobbin I FME’d the shapes on the maroon fabric and added flower beads and micro sequins.
The velvet below the lady has loops of Sadi gold twist and micro snowflake sequins.
The lavender silver hail-spot organza has butterfly sequins,pink/lavendersquare holograpgic sequins and ruby micro beads anchoring them.

Thankfully,I completed my committments just in time,as today my husband was admitted to hospital for observation and possible surgery……..hopefully,nothing radical,but I may be otherwise occupied for a while….

Take care,and hope to be in contact again,soon!
