Love sewing themes

Markers and PanPastels


Had a play with some new markers, PPs and those fabulous PaperArtsy stamps to create this little card. The background is my own digitally designed paper using elements from DigitalCrea.


The dress form was coloured with the markers and I used a blender to create the mottled effect which gives it a fabulous vintage feel to it. As I had stamped onto cream card I used PPs to colour in the bottom half. 


Again the markers were used on the cotton reels and I finished them off with a Sakura glaze pen to make the colours stand out a bit more.

A simple card but I think it looks quite effective.

Hope you are having a good week.

Brenda, the whole card is beautiful but I can't take my eyes off the blues on the dress form and spools... you've taken coloring to a whole new level, and it is mesmerizing!

You make sewing look amazingly 'cool'!

I aways wanted a dress form for real.
Lovely creations Brenda! If you are going in for dressmaking and taking orders, I will have black maxi dress :)
