Patchwork Squares

Morning everyone,
I wish you a Happy New Year and do hope you enjoyed a good Christmas break.

I created a Gelli Plate background with Adirondack ink pads in Wild Plum and Sunshine Yellow, using a brayer to blend the colours and the same stamp sets to add interest on the background.
I didn't ink the stamps or use an acrylic block, I simply stamped them directly onto the brayered ink gelli plate.

  Next I cut the background into 5cm squares and stamped the faux stitching using a
I then stamped the various images and textures using both stamp sets.
The base card is a folded piece of A4 Kraft card.
Next I cut squares of Hessian and Cheesecloth material to layer the squares onto before mounting onto the card.
I finished with various buttons, threads and a ribbon bow creating a card for any ocassion.
