Fabric Flowers- SFYTT

Happy Grandparents Day!  It has been a slow and lazy start to my Sunday but I was able to play along with I {heart} 2 Stamp sketch of the week below and try out some fabric flowers I have been wanting to make.

I used SU! WW for the base and added some SU! Kraft for the second layer. I used American Crafts Adhesive backed Fabric Paper by Dear Lizzy for the flower and strip on the side.  I stamped SU! Bella Toile on the Kraft cs with Versamark ink for a subtle look.  The butterfly is from Fun with Rubber Stamps, stamped on MFT's Perfect Panels in white, and colored in with Copics.  I added some Spica glitter pens over the butterfly for a little sparkle.  A sewing machine was used for the stitching while the the image and flower was popped up with diamensionals.  The circle die behind the flower is Spellbinders new Eyelet Circles die set.  I finished it off with edging the sides of the image and panel with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Antique Linen.   Here is a closer look at the flower.  I added a fun crystal brad to the center and I am pretty happy at how this flower turned out since it was my first one!

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great rest of the weekend!!
