Cuttlebug Be Inspired Challenge #70: Fabric

Had to jump in and join this challenge for the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog: Be Inspired #70--Fabric. My Design Diva Friend, Chris has been doing such beautiful projects with fabric lately and I have resisted trying it out so far. I bought this fabric with my friend Sheryl during a hysterically funny trip to JoAnn's one day in Oct. Chris saw it at one of our meetings and stated how much she loved it. So, this card is going to be a Thank You to her :)
Asian fabric
gold cs by DCWV
gold paint daubers by Ranger
red acrylic paint
Grungepaper by Tim Holtz
Provo Craft Floral Borders die
Gold Perfect Pearls/Ranger Mini Mister
Asian coin charm
Asian floral stamp
clear embossing powder/heat gun
corner photo punch
Thank You cut from Chinese takeout box
deckled edged scissors
Fire Brick Distress Ink
The red and gold strips at the bottom were die cut from Grungepaper---one painted w/gold paint dauber and the other w/red acrylic paint and sprited w/gold Perfect Pearls mixed in water using a mini mister. The fabric was torn and frayed a bit before adhering down to gold cardstock. The floral piece was done by stamping the Asian flower on gold cs and heat embossing w/clear embossing powder; then it was painted over w/red acrylic paint; when almost dry I used a damp papertowel to remove the paint from the embossed design revealing the gold paper underneath. The 'thank you' was cut from a Chinese takeout carton using deckle edged scissors, inked w/Fire Brick Distress Ink and edged w/gold paint dauber---then adhered w/foam tape to pop.
