Fabric on my card!

Hello there, Welcome here and to Saturday and my post for the Craft Barn! This week we have been using fabric, it's been great seeing all the different takes on this idea on our blog. This is my interpretation
 I used the fabric all around the edge and also a small square to stamp onto. The fabric had a pinked edge I wanted the pinking to show at the edge of the canvas. My pinking shears are blunt so I had to use 4 of the pieces of fabric from the pack but just managed to get around before I ran out:0)
 Stamping onto fabric is the same as stamping onto card really but I used Stazon just in case, I didn't want it to lift in the sun, or the design to spread. The beads are sewn on, a very rare occurance on this blog LOL I was pleased how they jangled and swung. The fabric was easy to distress/fray at the edges to give texture on the panel.
 Thank you for stopping by to check it out, have a great weekend, Gay xx
