fabric panels for greeting cards

here are a couple greeting cards i made, using some fabric swatches from my stash that i had painted with leftover dabs of acrylic paint.

this first panel was paint-stamped on white cotton with a cosmetic sponge, a foam marshmallow, a pencil eraser, and the edge of a credit card. then i accented it with some white flake medium.

the panel below was white cotton that i water-washed with green and yellow inks, then paint stamped with a fleur-de-lys.
i framed it with a piece of fabric i monoprinted with stripes scraped on to a gel plate. i wrapped each fabric panel around a smaller square of cardstock, adhered with mod podge.

painting fabric is one of my most favorite things to do - so fun and easy, and i just love the texture fabric gives to a card.
