Fringe inspriation

When I saw this photo posted for the Moxie Fab World challenge I was immediately drawn to the pink blanket’s fringe. Looking about the picture I picked up several other pieces of inspiration… the pattern on the carpet, the color & texture of the armchairs & blanket and the bold frame of the mirror over the mantel. I used all these elements when I came up with this card.

Recipe
cardstock, sentiment stamp, chalk, twill, punches: Stampin’ Up
background stamp: Hero Arts
embossing ink: Versa Mark
dye inks: Ranger
floss: DMC

• I stamped the background with embossing ink and rubbed chalk over it for pop to the image. It also gives it a velvety appearance in real life.
• I inked the twill for richer texture.
• To get the fringe spacing just right, I used a ruler and marked the back of the twill at 1/2 cm intervals using a permanent pen. Just use a wide, loopy “whip stitch” with the floss, then cut all the loops to create the fringe. Add a dot of liquid adhesive to the back of each stitch to help hold the floss in place.
• For the frame, I punched a 1 1/4 in circle into the dark cardstock then punched a scallop circle out around the empty circle. I punched a slightly larger circle out of the vanilla cardstock for my sentiment and layered the scallop frame over the top with foam adhesive.
