A Moxie EBTKS Challenge!

I had to have a little more fun with fabric! The deadline for the Moxie Fab World challenge is tomorrow (6/7/10)- so get busy!
There's also a new EBTKS challenge- using nailpolish! Those girls really keep us thinking outside of the box!

So here's what I've come up with to combine the challenges:

Cardstock is PTI (kraft/spring moss). Stamps PTI Through the trees & BB: text style. Ink is Versafine brown, SU! garden green, PTI spring moss & chai tea (inside of card is versafine brown & PTI pure poppy). The fabric is some muslin & machine stitching to adhere/enhance.

This card will be for my daughter's preschool teacher. Words cannot express the blessing she has been in her/our lives....

Now don't laugh too hard at the mess! You can see I tried to just drop nailpolish on a stamped image- but that went dreadfully wrong! It spread much too far & soaked into the fabric too much.... So I tried dropping it onto a ziploc & letting it dry, then prying them up & gluing them on individually. The things we do for creativity. *giggle*

The 'fruit' is OPI 'quarter of a cent-cherry'! The names always crack me up!!!
Now head over to Moxie Fab & EBTKS and see what fun everyone is having! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by!

what a beautiful card, and I love that you keep on coming up with different ways to use fabric in your creations. And can I say that I think the idea of putting the nailpolish on the plastic bag first is actually pure genius!

Awesome card! I must laugh at how you created the fruit. I can soooo relate. Lord knows that I have my share of stamping fiascos.

And let me just say, you better get a B.I.G. stick. Cause in a few short years, you're gonna be beating the boys away from your door. Hadley is on beautiful little girl.
