I'll be there for you

Step Outside Your Box has a toughie this week: Fabric of our lives.
Well then, I had to step outside my safe zone, but I know it's a good thing and one of the reasons I try to manage every challenge.

T-shirt jersey, paper flowers and a a placket made with white polyshrink, stamped and chalked. I can't believe I have 6 sheets of that stuff and no sensible use for it. I bought it to try make some nice jewelry with it, but the stuff is just mean! I dislike how it feels when it is cured. Makes my teeth hurt. Ugh.

The placket is attached with silk embroidery floss, as are some of the flowers. Yes, it's real silk, a terrific find at the flea market in Vienna.
This ATC is for a dear friend, who makes cards and now wants to explore the world of ATC's.


  1. this is beautiful, I love the richness of the colors.

  2. Maybe you don't like polshrink, but your card looks wonderful anyway! ;)

  3. This is fab! I feel much the same about SP, but it is useful as a mini embellishment now and again!
