The fabric is the Red element, I have a tutorial on how I created the texture below.
The other elements are a Vintage image.
Textured paper, which has been torn.
Snowflake, which has been embossed with Enamelware ep.
And the numbers 25, which were inked up and little bits of mesh glued on, then coated with glossy accents.
Two types of machine stitching; a straight and zig-zag, I thought it would create more interest.
You can just about see that I have applied some white acrylic to the Corrugated Cardboard Bg, just to break up the uniformity of the lines.
My piece of calico was sprayed with inks, stamps applied and then a light coating of Gesso, I do this last part to stabilise and stiffen the material.
It also has the wonderful effect of toning and blending the inks into the material. I let this Gesso dry.
A tip, Only use 100% cotton.
Place inside an embossing folder, and you create the patterned texture as you would when using card stock.
Now just cut or fray as I have done to fit your project.
Christmas shopping with my girls tomorrow, a great weekend for me.
