Wow I have just had one of those days that is a bit magical, and this is the result. I started the day by collecting dark red acer leaves. I then proceeded to hammer them onto fabric to give these truly beautiful acer leaf prints. Isn't it just something special? I then made a quilt sandwich and free machine stitched around it. The frame is a Cuttlebug die which I call wonky frames. I have several; squares, rectangles and circles and they are all rather wonky, which I love. Much better than boring straight. This has been stitched into place so that the quilting piece is fairly dimensional. The image above is a close up. The finished item is below. I have submitted it for The Play Date Cafe Challenge 50.
The leaves are punched out and a backing of green glimmer ,isted paper mounted behind. The words are some great ones from Creshendho. Available from The Stamp Attic in the UK. These have been stamped onto some inked paper that includes green and melon colours, scrunched for texture and ironed.
Here are the challenge colours.
