It is all about the sewing at FSC
Those that know me, know that I am not into sewing…at all…
so this challenge stretched my imagination a little.
(which is always a good thing)
When I saw these teddy stamps and the whole thing fell into place.
These teddies look like ‘well-loved’ favourite toys
that just need a little tender care and some re-vamping
– and that is where the sewing comes into it!
It kind of reminds me of the gifts we are given to us when we are a baby that we hang onto forever…
the ones that we would never ever throw out…
The main panel is done in my all-time favourite techniques of
one-layer stamping and masking.
They just go together so naturally and give you that extra depth and dimension to your work.
Great for telling a story with your stamping!
A little distressing, a little bleach-blocking in the background (another favourite technique), and
a whole lot of love, make up this card.
well almost…I couldn’t resist a little poking with a needle in the arm at the last minute…
(for mending purposes of course! lol)
The colours are done with worn lipstick and some vintage photo.
The girls at FSC
have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of the fashionettes,
be inspired and maybe join in the fun.
are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 as well.
Stamping must be the focal point on your project!
I hope you like my card.
