    Hi everyone. Thank you for all your sweet comments about last weeks card.
    This week is sketch week and Beggahuna made this sketch for us:

    card3-1.jpg

    Here's my take on it:

    w5600mon.jpg

    This is how I did my card

    1-10.jpg

    First I selected the paper/fabric I wanted to work with. I painted my fabric with acrylic paint and let it air dry.

    2-10.jpg

    I stamped all around the fabric, with the Prima stamp that came in the kit. I used Archival ink, because it is permanent.

    3-10.jpg

    I adhered the fabric to my card, using Fabri-tac

    4-10.jpg

    I cut another piece of fabric. Twice as long as mu card is, cause I wanted to ruffle it.

    5-8.jpg

    I started at the top. Put a line of glue and ruffled and pressed down the fabric.

    6-9.jpg

    I continued doing that until I covered my whole card.

    7-9.jpg

    I then, cut my squares.

    8-8.jpg

    I glued some lace and trim (that comes in the kit) undeeath my fabric.

    9-8.jpg

    I distressed my squares and glued them down. I also glued some pieces of necklaces down.

    10-5.jpg

    Finished it of with some tiny roses.

    11-8.jpg

    Here you see it in a close up

    12-8.jpg

    Placed my sentiment.

    13-8.jpg

    Added some extra trim and a bow.

    14-7.jpg

    cut off a piece of the ruler strip (which is on the paper with the alpha) distressed it and glued it down.

    15-6.jpg

    I also did this on the bottom

    16-6.jpg

    For the finishing touch I added some (liquid) pearls. And I called it done.

    ***************************************************************************************

    rules for this week:

    Make a card/tag using Beggahuna's sketch.
    Use the liquid pearl that came in the kit
    Use your stamp that came in the kit

    ***************************************************************************************

    Please chack the question an answers thread, cause I just placed a question for you guys there.

      WOw, Paulien!! Gorgeous!!! I would have never thought to paint fabric!!! You're so creative!

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

              ooooooh ! stunning !

              How do you get your fabric to stick so well Paulien? I am sure if I tried the netting ruffle it would be pinging off all over the place!

                Thank you girls. you are all so sweet!

                Jennie…. For this card I used Beacon's Magna-Tac. It is the same as Fabri-Tac, only for us European is it called Magna-Tac.

                For last weeks card, I used hot glue. Let it cool down for a few seconds and then press the netting in it. Works perfectly fine.

                  Thanks for that Paulien – I'll look out for the Magna-Tac (me and hot glue guns are not good together!).

                  #167524

                  You can also use Beacon's 3 in 1 craft glue…. that stuff is amazing and work perfect for almost anything. I truly love it. It even glues lace to acetate… perfect!
