No theme?

 Having used my Gelli plate to print some fabric (see earlier blog) I thought I should use some of the fabric.

Of course, I’m sure some purist will ask “How can you title it  no theme, when the fabric in all six cards is from the same batch?”

My choice, my dear!  (said with a cheeky grin)

Anyway, I thought that some hand stitching and the addition of a few embellishments would act as the no theme
for this part of Round 14 for Postmark’dArt.

One card has a  paper clay molded  face painted with a Lumiere paint, and nestled into an orange gold silk flower.
 The second has soft metallic mesh appliqued with a multi toned thread.

Card three is a mixture of flower sequins, metallic ribbon floss and a bead cabochon.
Card four has a band of mesh held in position with a strip of sequinned ribbon
Five has a larger black mesh, liberated from a now defunct scrap-booking supply and bigle beads and another cabochon added/
 Finally, card six sports some ribbon floss; a paper flower anchored by a matching brad and some oval shaped beads.

Now……to tackle those STRESS themed cards! They are really giving me grief. I may have to start again with another idea.

  1. Wonderful variations! And yes, so truly cheeky…and how fun is that of you 😉 The freedom of creation and playing without expectations of anything but artful fun is the very best part! And look how cute these are!!!!

  2. I’d like to try a gelli plate, they don’t ship them over here, but they seem great to use!
