SSCB#16 Add Fabric - Welcome

Hi friends!  Glad you could stop by today.  I've got the deets on the new Serendipity Stamps Challenge and I'm hoping you are going to find some time to play!  The challenge this time is to add some fabric (other than ribbon or lace) on your project.  This is a good time to get those Serendipity Stamps inky and you might just win $20 off your next order.   Everyone is a winner though because the current sale is 40% off the highest priced item in your cart  - use code “40fromhigh713”  good through 7/31. 

I sort of hemmed and hawed over this one - I thought about felt flowers, and strips of burlap, but in the end I settled for this simple linen cloth.  I found it at Michael s and it came in a 12 x 12" sheet - mixed in with all their other 12 x 12 papers in the "scrapbook" area.   It was super easy to make the fringes by pulling threads off the edges, and it lays nice and smooth - not too bulky.   I colored up my frame with Copic markers and fussy cut it - inside and out.    I thought I'd do something a little unexpected by adding the rows of bright ric rac and enamel dots inside the frame.  I think my serious flower frame looks whimsical and fun now.  What do you think?
Stop by the rest of the design team's blogs and see what they did with this fabric challenge.  I'm sure you'll be delighted and see more unexpected ways they interpreted the challenge.

Have a great day!

That is one beautiful the coloring and how you added the linen to it. As I read your post, I realized how you phased it perfectly...the ric rack was a surprise and unexpected...great idea.
