Lavinia Stamps Faries on Fabric.

Hi Blogging friends, just a little something extra, had a small piece of the printed fabric left over from something else and thought it would nice to use it on a tag, so here it is.

First I placed wadding at the back of the fabric, machined the leaf veins and enhanced this with hand stitching using gold thread.

I machined on the black flower trim before trimming away excess wadding, glueing the fabric to the tag and edging it with crackle glaze.
When the glaze was dry, I went around the edge with a gold gilding pen.

 I have included this closeup as it shows the crackle glaze better.

I love the Lavinia Mushroom stamps (Zen Tall Mushrooms) and the idea of combining them with the downloads so decided to stamp them onto a sheet of acetate, (Stazon ink is best for this).
I have used this as an overlay for the tag.

I just had to make their eyes stand out so added brads.

Finished this off by joining the fabric section and the acetate with a black cord.
This is a fairly quick way to use the downloads as there is a lot less hand sewing.

 Hoping Tracey likes this.
