To go on cards

This is the fabric that I wrote about the other day, taken more or less from Purple Missus blog of layers done on the embellisher, which I did and then added some free motion and some flower stitched rings. I also embellished on some gold cord.
Cut it all up into ATC sized pieces, cut out using a punch some flower shapes from some fabric paper and stitched them on with some beads and a few little sequins.
I will end up using them on cards.
I was really pleased at the way the fabric paper flowers came out.
I do need to edge them on the machine. I had thought of hand sewing but it is so rough with all the organza and stuff i think it will be better done on the machine.
Fun to do.
Cooler today, but no rain, I have also found I have some clematis flowering in my plum tree, another thing I should not grow but this one has been with me for a couple of years now, I took its photo this morning so will put it up a bit later.

Hi Penny, These pieces are fabulous. I love the way you went that one step further with your stitching and embellising, gives the pieces so much more texture.
Lovely colour too!

Hi Penny
Love these little ATCs. Hope at least one of them goes to someone special from the Grumpy Goddesses

I like these a lot, Penny. Great idea using the flower stitch on top - I just got one of those feet & have been having fun playing with it myself. :)
