Have a couple of unfinished projects laying about on the desk - mostly images which I've coloured that are waiting for assembly! Am trying to get round to making them up but I keep getting distracted by boring things like ironing!
Anyway here's one I DID manage to put together - this is another image from the Stempelglede Vintage Garden plate - just love these stamps!Flowers were stamped then painted with watercolours. I dusted some Spun Sugar DI round the edges, then distressed and layered onto dark pink linen textured card. I put some pale green linen textured card behind it and then ripped off some scrim and dyed it with the DI.
The other DP is from K and Co, layered onto the same pale geen and dark pink linen cardstock.
All the layers were stitched together - am going mad now with this sewing machine!!!!!!
The dark green cotton lace is from my stash as are the pink organza ribbon, pearl and pins. The flourish and the flower were coloured with promarkers.
Inside I used some more of the pale green and pink and just stamped onto the remnant of the K and Co paper. Stitched it to make a pocket and put a tag inside the pocket which has a plain background to write a greeting.
I am becoming hooked on distressing and stitching cards - hope I'm getting better at it with all this practice........
