Simon Monday Challenge

Hi again everyone, I managed to finish a couple of quick makes today and am entering them into this week's challenge at the Simon Monday Challenge blog where it's 'take a leap into the unknown' as the challenge. It was lovely to find out that I received an honourable mention for my tag last week so thank you very much for that Andrea.
For my leap I've chosen fabric, I haven't really worked with it that much in papercrafts and I chose some hessian to start with which I gave a treatment of texture and gesso to and used as a layer between the Woodware flower image and the Fresco Finish painted tag. I attached the hessian by stapling it with a stapler.
The card has the same hessian fabric treatment and this time I used the Woodware stamp for the bottom layer stamped in paint over the top of a painted layer. The focal image is by Inkyliscious and painted with watercolour markers.
I've enjoyed playing with fabric, I like how the gesso picks out all the texture.
Again, Happy Mother's Day to all the Mum's in the UK.
Back soon,

These look great Chris. I really like the texture over the hessian, gives a lovely look behind the stamped images.
