January card for Pat
Here is my January card for Pat, I wasn't sure what fabrics I wanted to use for this card, but while looking for something else I came across some organza in black and rust colours,
I had already decided to mirror image the design as shown here.
I placed a layer of dark grey, then black organza securing them with a little fusible webbing, I felt the black still looked flat so placed some bronze net over the surface,
I put a strip of fusible web down the centre and started cutting small snippets of orange and bronze organza , then pressed them into place
I added copper foil to the surface there was enough of the fusible showing to catch the foil, once more I cut small snippets of the rust organza and pressed again, for the white lines I used a soft silver thread as my whites were to bright.
I finished off by zig-zagging the edges. and adding a hint of Goldfinger to the outer edge.
