#141 OSAAT Fabric, Ribbon or Lace

This image is called Disco Dan and is by Stitchy over at Stitchybear Digital Stamps Shop. The image comes in varying shades of shirt  so I've actually printed Dan three times in varying sizes and colours so I think it's Dan and his two brothers!!

The theme over at One Stitch at a Time is Fabric, Ribbon or Lace and I'm hoping my net passes muster as fabric. I didn't have any fabric suitable as ties for Dan and his brothers so I had to make a backing instead. I used the colours to match their shirts. I then mounted the image on to black Mirri card and set it on top of the three pieces of netting - that was a major job in itself! The lilac piece went missing from my workbench when it was laid out whist I made my mind up as to whether the design would work. After taking advice from people to pray to St Anthony for guidance in finding it and not being successful I decided to wait until the next day.  (I got mixed up and prayed to St Jude so no wonder it didn't work) Anyway, when I woke the next morning I asked Eric to help me find it and he did. I washed the breakfast dishes and as I was coming out of the kitchen there it was behind the kitchen door. Gracie, our white tortoiseshell cat had obviously hooked it out of the design and carried it downstairs to play. I could get back on to the card making without any further delay! Cats!!! The small card blank is from Craft UK and the buttons are from Create and Craft. I'm not sure where I bought the netting but I've had it for years. I tied the buttons with gold twine, again I've had this for ages and it came from I know not where.
