Innovative Technique for Imagine Crafts

We were challenged to create a new technique for Imagine Crafts using some of the amazing products in their line of inks and supplies.  This is my take on the challenge that is featured on the Imagine Crafts blog today.

Some of my favorite colors are purples and pinks; I am a girly girl when it comes to flowers and butterflies in these colors.  When given a variety of products intended primarily for fabric I imagined a beautiful scented Sashay to decorate the closet.  During the process of creating this project I discovered some pleasant surprises, first that freezer paper can be used as a positive and negative mask for the same image using a die and different ink techniques, second that Vertigo can be colored with Fabrico markers, and finally that die cut and stamped fabric flowers can be successfully shaped into beautiful three-dimensional embellishments.  Make one for yourself or as a fabulous gift that will be treasured for years to come.

Check out the rest of the tutorial here and the other innovative projects by the Artists In Residence.

Thanks for stopping by and have fun creating fabric flowers of your own!
