Vintage Card & more Dyeing & spinning



More dyeing, which I did on holiday, this time these are dyes I found in my attic,




I have had them for at least 25 yrs lol, just shows if you keep something long enough you will eventually use it lol




The colours have blended together beautifully,


 

This is a gorgeous greens and coppery colours



 
carded and blended together 




 just wish I had dyed more as I have only 2 hanks of the wool, so not sure what I will make with them as yet,
I also have some of the fibres left over from the carding machine which I am going to felt with my machine so when I get round to making a card with it I will show you all....

In the meantime......  Heres a card I made over the summer, the backing paper I made myself in Photoshop. The sentiment reads :- time goes by so fast enjoy every moment.
I have added card candy and a prima flower with a ribbon bow. I love the colours in this card I think its my favourite so far......
