Embellish Fabric Color Challenge



Hey Everyone! I'm so very happy to say Happy Friday to each of you! I thought this day would never come. I honestly believe this was the longest week I've had in quite some time. My sleeping schedule slightly improved. After work, I was able to stay awake long enough to make it through Costco and the grocery store. We have been completely out of foodies since we returned from our travels. It's been no big deal because I've been sleeping instead of eating in the evening. But, when I wake up I'm STARVING. So, I've been hitting up the local Dunkin Donuts with a quickness every morning! It's an extra 10-20 to my commute, but since I've been waking up at 4:00 am EST, I'm early to work anyway! :) Do you have a Dunkin Donuts in your area? In my opinion, their drinks are far better than Starbucks. Just saying...

Anyway, it's time for another Embellish color challenge. This time, you have to use fabric. On my card, I used felt and tested out some of PTI's new scalloped edge dies! SO COOL! I've had my red felt for quite some time and picked it up at Michael's. It's very stiff, so it die cuts with ease and without those little hairy pieces. I found it in the kiddie craft aisle I believe! I'll post more details below. My stamped cherries end up looking like cherry jam! After I stamped them in red, I realized I wanted to color them in, which takes away the outlined part...duh...I should've used black (again, like yesterday's mishap)! So, then I tried to make it better and add some glossy accents and it just turned into jam!

Thanks so much for stopping by and make sure to make some time for the challenge this weekend! The colors are quite challenging, but fun in the end! Enjoy your weekend!!
