2 Sketches 4 You and Moxie Fab World Challenges

I have little time these days, so I thought I would play along with 2 challenges and make 1 card! How efficient of me!

Over at PaperCrafts' Moxie Fab World, they have a challenge to make a card with FABRIC. I bought this Silhouette Victorian Chair die cut shape for Moxie Fab's CHAIR challenge, but never had the time to make a card. So I'm using it now. I decided to use fabric for the upholstery part of the chair. I took white FABRIC and inked it with Spun Sugar Distress Ink (a new colour by Tim Holtz/Ranger). I then took a polka dot stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms and stamped some brown dots on my FABRIC. I covered the dark brown chair with Glossy Accents and the FABRIC with some clear drying glue.

The card design is based on a sketch provided by 2 SKETCHES 4 YOU. It is sketch #52 by Laura. Have a peek and play along too with either challenge.
