Fun in the Kitchen with Flowers

I combined two challenges for this floral themed FFFC challenge. The Fiberart Traders had a challenge to have Fun in the Kitchen and swap postcards with our results.
 A cookie cutter was used as a stencil for the 3 large flowers, spritzed Colorhue dyes on 55%cotton/45% silk fabric, turmeric center.
Floral toothpicks as resist for the smaller floral postcard on 55%cotton/45% silk fabric ..spritzed with Colorhue dyes , turmeric center
 I love the plastic doily texture underneath in the floral toothpick not sure it shows in the picture.

How fun is this! I've used tumeric before, but am not familiar with Colorhue dyes. The colors are beautiful and vibrant. What are the sizes? Love them both...

Thanks. The postcards are 4"Hx6"W. The great thing about Colorhue dyes are non messy almost instant silk dyes. Have dyed silk scarves in less than 5 minutes! I have been looking for a fabric that will work for quilts and I love the satin look of the cotton/ silk blend.
