Hi All

I really enjoyed making this card as I love to use natural textures on my cards when I can, so today I used a gorgeous stamp set that I am sure a lot of you have already called The Sewing Room. I have wanted it for so long!

What do you think?

I loved making this and I enjoyed how it turned out too, down to the little needle on the yarn to the left haha.

So to begin , I used perfect medium and clear embossing powder on white card and stamped out several of the smaller images like buttons and stitches and then heat set  I used the ruler stamp down one side too.

I used these three colours of distress ink to add colour to the paper and make the clear embossing stand out.

Once I had the colours I wanted down on my first couple of layers I added some water and white paint splats I also took a white pen that you pump to prime  and flicked that at the page. I also did a little tone on tone stamping to give a little interest on the background.

I then prepped a couple of different weaves of Hessian, by pulling out some of the strands on each side to let them fray in to each other.

I added the light coloured hessian on top of the old then added a small piece of gold ribbon too as you will see below.

 Once this was all done I distressed the edge with my Tim holtz tool and added it to Kraft card, with foam on the bottom to raise it up off the card for dimension. I added several layers of card for matting and layering also.

 I stamped out this saying from the same set of Stamps  The Sewing Room.

Here s the bottom right corner for a peep at the sentiment in situ.

This is some of the cute little pieces added to the lovely stamp set as part of the theme.

I also stamped out the Dress form and added it to the card with a Kraft card layer and I inked the edge of the card with Rusty hinge and Vintage photo distress ink.

Here is a closer up of the centre piece and the background and all the co-ordinating pieces.
And here you can see the finishing touches were the peice of string with the plastic needle added and a thimble to the side. The cotton reels, buttons and half reels.

This is the stamp set I used as always with a link to where you can buy of course…
