Pia *Day 4*

I love this card by Pia:

First of all, I love that the rich orange background is done on fabric/canvas!! I love the eye- catching colors, from the beautiful gold to the deep blue and purple of the flower. Finally, the wire antennas on the butterfly are the perfect unexpected touch to finish out this beauty!

Here is my take:


Pia inspired me to finally pull out some scrap pieces of fabric and paint away. So fun!

Supplies

Stamps: Sentiment (Papertrey Ink), Butterflies (Hero Arts Digital Winged Friends); Ink: Black Ink (Stampin' Up), Distress Ink (Tim Holtz); Other: Leaves (Sizzix Die Cut), Misc. Gems and Fabric Scrap, Music Paper (Michelle Underwood Digital Vintage Holiday Memories Kit), Acrylic Paint (Making Memories), Corner Rounder (EK Success)

Isn't it so much fun to work with fabric? I love it! Reminds me of the first art classes in school. Your card is gorgeous Jill - I love the leaves with the music notes and the lovely butterflies.
