Dotties World Challenge - Get the Feeling

Nicola set a fantastic challenge this week over at Dotties World which is ... Get the feeling!!!!! I would like to see some kind of fabric incorperated in the card or item, it could be felt, ribbon, lace, cotton etc and of course a Charmed Cards and crafts download. I wasnt sure what I was going to do for this then I was sat the other evening playing with a new toy called a yo-yo maker which makes little rosette thingies out out fabric and I had picked up some scraps of material at the same shop I bought the yo-yo maker and when I finished it, it occurred to me that it would fit nicely in the centre of a paper flower and so my card was born! I have used the gorgeous Madison in Venice for my image and coloured her using my sakura stardust pens so her dress and accessories are quite glittery but it doesn't show that well in the pic. She is mounted on some paper by Raspberry Road Designs which in turn is matted onto a piece of coredinations gemstone cs and the background paper is Pm as are the flowers then I've added the yo-yo to the biggest flower and some gems from my stash to the others, also used the sakura pen to colour some of the background flowers to tie it all together. Hope you like it. TFL.

Sorry not been about much again this week but work got in the way and now I have a terrible cold felt so bad yesterday I just couldn't face crafting which was annoying as I had planned to spend the whole day catching up on challenges but it was not to be! so I'd best get on with some now instead! Bye for now. x


  1. This is gorgeous Jac, love the colours you chose. The yo-yo maker is a new one to me and the result looks fab!
    Hope you soon feel better.

  2. What a stunner Jac! I love how you've made her dress all sparkly.
    I haven't been around much either, why does life have to get in the way of things eh?

  3. Jac, I hope you are feeling better. Your card is fabulous! I'm intrigued by the yo-yo thingies and also jealous of the four sets of stamps you got. My DH was with me when I got my 1 set :( Lol.
