Measuring a Stitch in Time ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week has started well and you had a lovely weekend. I’ve still got my nose down trying to finish DT projects as well as continuing to sort my room out. So I dug into my background crusading folder and created this lovely card …
An A6 tent fold of course lol!
Lots of yummy colours and I love the colours I achieved on the background!
The inch ruler and dress form are two of my all time favourite stamps
I got to use a lot of rather old embellishments and papers and I loved creating this one!
This all started out because I want to incorporate numbers and sewing!
Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Allsorts Challenge #330 Numbers
Card Mania Challenge CMC#72 Pastel Colours
Cards und More Challenge #141 No DP/PP
Country View Crafts Challenge Numbers
Paper Sweeties Challenge #35 colours
I chose the August colour palette as it’s one of my favourites!
I’ve been very lucky with this challenge. I love ombre and have been obsessed with it for a while and this is my first attempt!
Stamping Sensations Challenge Sew Special
Uniko Stamps Challenge Autumn/Fall I used fall colours so hope that is allowed
I am so happy I got to use this background as I created it earlier in the month after I had seen some of the challenges I love to play along with. I grabbed my Clarity Dress Form stamps and my Clarity ruler stamp and created a random background with my Butterscotch AIP and Meadow AIP (
Adirondack ink pad). I dragged the stamped Butterscotch in to
colour the dress forms and left to dry. I
watered down the Butterscotch to create a lovely soft peach shade and coloured
the background with it. Once dry I used my
Currant AIP and stamped the buttons and hearts across the page, drawing the ink
inwards to colour the buttons: simples lol!
Once again this will be a quick post because we’re busy and I’m struggling a bit. Unfortunately the piper always has to be paid if I have some fun, but I don’t mind as I will be playing with inks and paints and stamps lol!
I have candy that is open world wide to new and old Followers. I would love it if my current Followers were to add their name too, for the post with the link you need to go here. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this week ttfn Karen x
