More Stitches


More stitches over at Art Journey.  I coloured the base of the card with permanent green (640.5) pan pastel.  I cut a piece of muslin and stamped the Art Journey image from the Friends 2 plate in timber brown stazon.  I frayed the edges and coloured them with burnt sienna shade (740.3) pan pastel.  I sewed a zig-zag stitch with the sewing machine to attach the strip of hessian and the tulle fabric.  I also sewed a row top right to hold the fabric in place on the card.  I cut the tulle and used the heat gun to singe it but couldn't do it as much as I wanted to as I didn't want to set the card on fire!!!  I haven't added a sentiment yet, as I don't know what I'm going to use it for.

Love this. Doing it on fabric and adding that tulle make the image so atmospheric. Just a suggestion - I keep a stash of ATC's/tags/small projects in a box to use as toppers on cards when they are needed in a rush and I don't have time to do the whole thing. As you rightly say, you can add the appropriate sentiment and possibly some M&L at that stage. It's saved my bacon on more than one occasion now!!
Loving your creativity, hugs Buttons x
