Show some stitching at The Stamp Man

Well this next challenge at The Stamp Man is hosted by the lovely Sue and she wants you to show us some stitching on your project. Sue makes some beautiful pieces and I was very lucky to meet up with her when we did the workshop at LB Crafts. Please pop over to the Stamp Man main challenge blog to see all the fabulous inspiration from the design team and don't forget if you enter you stand a chance of winning £10.00 to spend at the Stamp Man on-line store.

I have to say I have kept my piece a bit more simple this time as with the holidays looming fast I am trying to get ahead of myself with all my DT work. With work becoming full time in September even more reason to get well ahead if I can.

So this is a card for a change.

For this project I have used -
Die - Sewing Room by Tim Holtz.
Papers - Tim Holtz shabby vintage.
Distress Inks - vintage photo, victorian velvet
Shrink plastic.
The button is made of clay covered with rose inka gold and is from one of my moulds.
Hessian, fabric and threads.
Sentiment - my own.

 Tiny thread holders cut from the TH die in shrink plastic and then alcohol inked.

 Button made of clay with a mould made when I was at Lucy's. She has the most fabulous work including moulds she makes herself and is doing an on-line course if you are interested in how she makes them. Pop over to see her here. We had a great day together yesterday when she came to visit me and we made more moulds, cut dies and stamped images. Lucy also gave me a very special gift - a wonderful steampunk frame she had made. Pop HERE to see it. Isn't it fabulous?

 The sentiment is not mine, I found it on the internet and just loved it. But I typed and printed it onto inked paper using PE.

I hope you like something a bit different from me again. Sewing is definitely the theme I love best at the moment. (You wait till you see what comes up on Sunday!!!)

Take care and have fun.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
