Hi Everyone................thanks for continuing to follow me. I am so looking forward to the weekend and some crafty time...........all nice and cosy in my little craft room.
Over at Simon Says Stamp and Show the challenge is What are you known for ? I would say that I am known for my 'distress and collage' pieces. I love to create various backgrounds with Distress Inks
( particularly Vintage Photo ) and then piece together various stamps and embellishments from my stash. My style can also be a bit quirky at times :-)
Below is such a piece............made for a colleague who had a special birthday and had recently purchased a sewing machine.
The card is an 8 by 8.........but not an easel one !!!!. The background was inked with Vintage Photo and Stormy Sky Distress Inks, then stamped with various stamps from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Haberdashery Set (CMS 105) in Archival Ink.
The corrugated card was also inked with DI's and adhered with Ranger Wonder Tape.
The sewing machine above is one of Wendy Vecchi's Blossom Bucket Embellishments.
The inch tape is from my stash and one that I cut up it was also adhered with Wonder Tape.
I halved the bobbin or spool so it would lie flat on the card, inked it with some DI's to age it. Some of Tim's stamped images were then matted on to card.
Having stamped the tailor's dummy I cut it in half and adhered some vintage lace and some pearls, as well as a dragonfly from my stash. Some Buttons were added to the corner.
I am also entering this piece in the following challenges:
Hope you are all keeping warm and getting very inky
