This is my DT piece for the Stampman challenge this fortnight... I was saying the other day how much I LOVE the TH sewing room set, so I had to use it again for this challenge. But it had to be different from last time, so I decided to shrink it!!
The idea is to show some sewing... well actually I can and do sew, but not for pleasure!!! After Pete died and I could not carry my old machine around, and finished up making a nasty mark in my conservatory table when I dropped it!!!! I decided to buy myself a new, light machine with self threading - cos my eyes are not what they were either!!
I knew, then, that I was going to do faux stitching, and there is only one set in my repertoire which fits that bill, and its the Creative Expressions one... there are zig zags and straights, so I did a bit of both...
So here they are, printed on the ATC in vintage photo distress inks... These buttons come out SO well when shrunk!!! They look like real shirt buttons. I printed all the elements and put clear ep on top for some texture... it worked well, once the pieces were shrunk...
So there we have it, as they say - that framies stamp looks as if it's seperately placed but it's not, it's just the way I printed and coloured in... and I liked that effect too. I coloured the lace with vintage photo and the ribbon with distress ink, to finish... hardly complicated, but I really enjoyed the constraint of working so small for a change!! Not made an ATC for ages...
Well, thankd sor looking and commenting - much appreciated!!
Love and light
PS... my new Vagabond has arrived today, let's hope he is not such a whimp as his brothers!!!
