Fun with Fabric and Flames - JUGS


It's just a description of what you'll be doing when you play along with the next Just Us Girls wildcard  challenge!
Our lovely hostess, Dana , is challenging all of us to to make a flower out of fabric. But not just any flower, a burnt edge flower!!! Dana found a tutorial on a very lovely website HERE. All you need is some silky material (other material may work too - I just tried what the tutorial mentioned), scissors and flame (a tealight works wonderfully). And if I can do it and not burn down the house, you can too! But seriously, because you will be using open flame, work on a heat resistant surface clear of a lot of material and remember to stay focused :) Oh yeah, if you have a curious kitty, you may want to sequester yourself for a little while... I speak from experience :) I tell you though, the results are soooooo worth it. The flowers look amazing!!!! I put mine on a card but you could make it into a hair clip, a clothing accessory, head band... the sky's the limit! If you decide that flames and fabric are not the safest option for your situation, then just make a fabric flower - we'd love to see any fabric bloom you can create.

On to my take on the challenge;

And here's a close up of that fabulous flower. I definitely do this technique again and I'll give a few other fabrics a go to see the results.

I used the Play Date Cafe colors, black, white and a splash of burgundy as well as the latest sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You.

In other fun news, it's our dear, sweet Kristin's Birthday next Tuesday! Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday to you!!!!! Hope you have a wonderful day, you deserve it!!!
