Daring Cardmakers Passion for Fashion

Hi!

So here's my first go at playing along with DCMers as a DT member! I'm really excited to be part of the team and looking forward to making some new bloggy friends so hi if you've never popped in here before! I'm Leo, short for Leonora but everyone calls me Leo and it's way easier to type too ;-).
I've got a bunch of leftover fabric bits and pieces on my desk this week so I grabbed  some of those to make an embellishment with stitching it together with my sewing machine. I used some paper off cuts in the background and to make the shoes with just sketching them out onto paper and cutting them out. I popped some PVA glue over the tops of them to make them a bit more substantial as embellies. The flower I made with rolled tissue paper and glued it to another paper flower before adding it to the card. The title bit I cut out of some patterned paper, I think it was a Jenni Bowlin one - it was just a little off cut but it had the  'fashion' word on it so I had to use it and just chopped out the word, added it to a label and then just popped the rest of the off cut of the paper underneath.
xx Leo
