Sewing style..


Hi,

I'm still in challenge mode and I loved the sketch over at CAS(E) this sketch #60 this week -


For some reason when I was thinking about this card, I really wanted to use purple, perhaps it was the DT inspiration?

I used a free stamp set that my Ma brought me when she visited last year and all the elements are sewing related  -

Free stamp set
JT has made me a card using it, but I have only really used the sentiment stamps.

I thought that the tape measure would work stamped onto white card, to replicate the strip in the sketch. As you can see I had to cheat a bit as the tape measure is not very big, but it worked out fine. I stamped the dressform onto purple card and then got all bold and took a MASSIVE risk and stamped the sentiment over it using silver ink.

I was reasonably happy with my card, but felt it needed a bit of a pep up, so added some sequins and bling. Now I am very happy with it :)

  1. Hi Claire, I think it's a fab card - I love the way you've used the ruler stamps. I have this stamp set from the magazine, but so far just used the sewing machine and cotton reel, hugs Carole Z X
