I love, love adding three-dimensional pieces to the surface. This is a close-up of the little heart cushion I made using the vintage hanky assortment pack from RibbonSmyth. Something great about working with vintage hankies. They are the staple for Shabby Chic aren't they? I used 5 small quarter pieces for the cq heart. What is great about the butterfly garland is that the butterflies are attached to shear wire-edge organza ribbon. This allows the butterflies to "flutter" among the design. Simply twist and curl the ribbon and tack to the surface ground among the little gathered rosetess. Add velvet leaves to the collage for a 3-D cushion.
This pillow has been made for a friend as a birthday gift. She enjoys vintage as much as I do and will appreciate the 1950's hanky cushion.
