fusing ribbon to organza

this week over at the play date cafe, the inspiration colors are plum, fuchsia and wisteria.

the panel on this greeting card is made from thin hand-dyed fabric that had been torn into ribbon strips. the fabric has a little velvet and some metallic thread running through it. i fused the strips to a piece of clear organza with lightweight fusible interfacing.

the background is a textured tissue paper called maruyama. i embellished the card with buttons and some trumpet and seed beads strung on a thin wire.
