it had to be
as I had collected the stamens &
dyed some fabric with them !
Three lily stamens are backed onto watercolour paper
which is lined with orange fabric.
The muslin over the top was stained
with three stamens in hot water
and a little twist of orange
embroidery cotton to finish off !
I'm thinking of hosting a Matchbox swap
( if I get enough takers ! )
I've seen a few of these swaps & like the idea.
If you took part,
you would have to decorate a small matchbox for each player.
In return you would receive one from everyone else
I would collect them all
& send them out together
when I get them all in.
I am going to set the theme:
Spring into Summer.
Cover & decorate the inside & outside of your matchbox
however you like !
Remember a small matchbox !
I will see how many takers I get in the week
and let you know next Monday
how many are playing...
