LTD In Stitches
Hilda is having a few days offline before she shut the computer down she set up this weeks Lots to do challenge which is in stitches. Real of faux stitching is ok just some suggestion of stitches somewhere. Some fabulous entries already including an amazing Apron and a marvellous sampler.
If you know me you'll know sewing is not my greatest skill in fact I'm still recovering from the teacher who made me undo the seam seam for a whole term. Do enjoy making trapeeze cards and as needle and thread is involved an trusting it counts. Stencil marked, cutout and holes pierced, frame run through bigshot with an embossing folder. The raised embossing touched with matallic green cats eye ink. Copper and green thread used for the stitching, bird stamped on the same card stock embossed with Cosmic Shimmer and coloured with glitter Sakura. Flowers stamped and embossed, same ep, on vellum. Always remember being told you cannot heat emboss vellum but that was after I had started doing it so not sure why you are not supposed to.
Not any Stampman stamps on here but am entering it into the first of their new fortnightly challenges. The Stampman Challenge which is an open theme. Might be back with a second entry girls.
