Paperartsy Challenge #12- Fabric

I've finally had time to come up with an entry for the latest challenge, see here for full details
I've so many ideas but not enough time at the moment - hopefully might find time over the weekend.

I started by stamping some leaves onto scraps of fabric in archival ink - I think these were the first PA stamps I purchased. These were cut out and machined onto a piece of hessian fabric.  This was too fragile and kept fraying so I backed it onto a scrap of calico.  
I then cut a bird shape from felt and stitched this into place.  To finish I added some die cut fabric flowers and beads.  The bottom photon gives the most realistic view of the colours as it had clouded over again when I took these. 

Thank you for popping by to look xx
