Time for a new challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil and this week I am playing hostess. My theme is to use fabric on your creation. Now I used a piece of denim on mine, but you could use felt, tulle, canvas, burlap, twill tape, or lace.
I picked out Baron and Butch to use on my card and wanted to stick with a boy feel so I went for the denim. I had originally meant to use a pair of old jeans I had kept of my hubby's but wouldn't you know it I finally got tired of them laying in the crafty closet and threw them away. Yes Minckler I can hear you gasping. LOL Isn't that how it always works. So I went to my trusty Wally World and lo and behold they had a bolt of this striped denim in the mark down bin so I nabbed an eighth of a yard for $.44. Yep that's me, the big spender. hee hee I used the edge of the piece cause I liked the cool look of it. Added some twill tape and some corrugated cardboard corners for even more of a boy style look. I'm really happy with the way Butch's fur came out.
Here's the inside of the card that I finished off with a second sentiment from Create with TLC.
