2nd week as Guest Designer at Stampotique

It's my 2nd week as guest designer for March at Stampotique designers challenge and that first week has flown by. This weeks theme is
"Green as your primary colour"
Now this wouldn't be a "go to" colour choice of mine but after making this I might use it more often as I really enjoyed making it. I did however have to add a dash of pink (now that's more me!)
For this one I have put together a combination of scraps that I had lying around like fabric,book pages,sequin waste to name a few. I have also added loads of free motion machine stiching for more texture. All of this sits on top of some brush strokes of paint and a little stenciling.
I have used the wonderful "Little Friends" by Janet Klein. I love how they are all in their summer dresses which is why I have called it "Summer Fun".
So pop over HERE and come and play along with something you have made that is predominately Green. Challenge rules can be found on the blog.
thanks for visiting

  2. Amanda your project looks fab, I like how you have added the fabric!
    Lots of people don't like green, but the touch of pink really makes it pop!

  3. Another perfect example of why you are the Stampotique Guest Designer this month, Amanda. You were definitely thinking outside of the proverbial box with this piece. Totally brilliant to use the fabric and stitching to anchor all the wonderful (an somewhat surprising) collection of embellishments! Perfect image to make this a part of your vintage collection.
