When I saw that the challenge over at Simply Less is More
was HARDWARE, I knew I had to use these metal shapes that I had found while walking in the neighborhood. I have no idea what they were originally used for, but knew that they were keepers. So, I added eyelets, brads and wire to make them look like insects and finished the panel by stitching around the outer edge of the square with wire.
So glad you stopped by!

Hi Brenda, Spotted you on LIM. I love the upcycling of those metal bits-you've made such an original design with them and the overstitching around the panel finishes the panel on the card beautifully.ReplyDelete
