Our challenge this week is "A Stitch in Time" so we would like to see stitching on your projects - simples !
The lucky winner will of course win that super duper $50 spending spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store ! Thank's again Heidi for being so generous.
The DP's are October Afternoon "The Thrift Shop" which I have had for quite a while and never broken into !
I stamped a background with a Hero Arts stamp called "Dots and Flowers " onto sticky back canvas. I then stamped the image which is by Tim Holtz and called "Vogue" on the top. I used Vintage Photo and Black Soot distress inks for the stamping.
The mannequin chipboard shape is by Maya Road from a gorgeous little set called "Sew Cute". I covered this with Victorian Velvet distress ink and then glossy accents. The clock face and angel wings are from my stash. I made my own crackle paint for the wings after inking them with Victorian Velvet distress ink.
The card with the lace wrapped around it was downloaded free from here. The lace is from my stash but I see that Hero Arts make a similar one. The pins are also from my stash but Simon Says Stamp sell lots of lovely trinket pins actually far nicer than these ones (note to self : add to shopping list) !!
The buttons are from my late Grandma's button tin.
The flowers are from my stash.
We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing all your stitched creations whether by needle, pen or stamp !
