MC Apr/13 - Quill Weave - Take Time

The card is side folded 5"w x 7"h white cardstock. The background was masked and sponged with Distress pads. Stamped the quote (Quietfire Design) - minus the last word "Season" with Versafine "Olympia Green", then wrote in my word "Spring" with a Micron black pen.

I wanted to do another sample of weaving for my upcoming weaving/combing class. It's your basic weaving technique, but then the item, in this case a basket, is cut out on the diagonal of the weaving.

I filled it with a bunch of fringed flowers. I had cut the fringes quite some time ago, so it was time to use them... On some of the fringes I colored part of the fringe with a Distress Marker. Added some flourish details and some green marquis oval leaves.

And it fits for these challenges:
