Monochromatic Green Frigate Stamped on Cotton

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with another of my cards to challenge myself to use my existing stash, I am really enjoying the challenge :-) I used an old cotton sheet and stamped on it with Stazon inks, then cut round the stamped images. I coloured the stamped images with Promarkers which gave it a fuzzy look which I love :-)
The fabric was backed with fusible web to make it sturdier, then sewed around the edges with green cotton which matched the Papermania Chelsea green papers I wanted to use with my sewing machine.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Pile it on: Its a Stitch Up
Fussy and Fancy: Fabric of our lives
Crafty Creations Challenges: Around the World
The Lollipop Ladies: Gobstoppers and Monochromatic
Top Tip Tuesdays: Recycle It
Hooked on Crafts: Cards for Men
Incy Wincy Designs: Monochromatic Greens
The Pink Elephant: Monochromatic

Thank you for looking and for your lovely comments :-)
