GCA #74 - Be Inspired by Fabric!!

Hello all!!! For the challenge this week we are going to use the delightful creations by KaraMia Sofia. I found this wonderful shop on Etsy and is run by Joanne. Her talent in sewing is awesome, especially to me as I do not know how to sew!!! However, she uses a variety of fabric prints to create make-up bags, clutches for bridal parties and holders for cell phones, etc.

My sample is now up! Fell asleep last night with my grandson and slept all night!! Guess I was more tired than I thought!!! You can see my inspiration piece Gadget Pouch with all the fun colors in it, which is why I picked this one.

I used the new With All My Heart set from the Occasions mini. I ordered mine in the clear mount set and did it make it easier to "double stamp" the large flower. I also used the Mojo 121 sketch for my layout.

The colors I used on here are Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Pumpkin Pie, Shimmery White and the SAB dsp. I really like how well these colors go together.

On the dsp piece I spritzed Pumpkin Pie and Rose Red over it with my color spritzer to "cut down" on the glare from the white. I also used my Pumpkin Pie marker and spritzed it over the stamped panel.

My stamped panel was done using the largest flower and the smallest in this set. I tried to mimic the over-lapping color on the fabric by stamping the largest flower first in Pretty in Pink and then Regal Rose. I stamped off the Regal Rose once and then slightly twisted the stamp to create the over lap.

The medium flower was stamped in Rose Red on Pretty in Pink and I used one of the new Pretty in Pink epoxy brads in the center. These can also be found in the new Occasions mini. I used my gel pen for the dots on the scallops.

A piece of Rose Red gg around the tab panel and it's done. Not a very good bow, but it works.

The strip is up on dimensionals and the scallop circle image is up on double dimensionals.
