Completely Out of the Box!!!

I took a GIANT step out of the stamping box here. I used my love for primitive stitching and the Accents & Elements Flower Fusion felt flowers to make this for Sue! Sue is the BEST!! She's my upline and has been VERY supportive of me, very helpful and had a good ear to listen to me!! And she's a good friend!

There's not a lot to explain here. I stitched the wording with DMC floss on muslin and added the flowers. I secured them in place with the brads. I cut a few of the green flowers up so I could use them as leaves. I usually stain dye my fabric but here I used the Stampin' Up! chalks to give the piece an aged look to it.

This was a LOT of fun to do. And these flowers are SO much fun to play with.

Thank you SO much for stopping by,

Wanda, this is very creative I never would have thought to use them in this manner. So going to go into the idea file for a future project.

Thanks for the inspiration!
