I have rather a lot of journals that need covers, so when it became apparent that these flowers weren't going to fit on a card, I found a journal that was a perfect fit! And being red, it fitted in great with this week's Play Date Cafe colours :)
Aren't they gorgeous? So many options with this colour combo.
I went for a bit of a grunge look. The flower stamp is from the Autumn Leaves' Doodle Flowers set. I stamped it onto text that I'd sprayed brown, mounted it on red card, and paper pieced the centre to include red dots and some grungy letters courtesy of Sir Tim. I stitched around the flowers with my sewing machine, and added the leaves and stems.
I didn't intend this piece to come out as pretty as it did LOL but it needed something to the side of the main image and the bits n pieces I found brought about a rather prettier look. Not that it matters!
And don't forget, the Play Date Cafe have a Design Team Call out 'til Feb 28th so still time to get your application in! Click HERE for details,
