Simon Says: It's A Stitch Up

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the Try To Contain Yourself Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

It's A Stitch Up

We would like to see a 'sewing' themed project this week. You can use either sewing themed stamps, dies etc or you could add real or faux stitching! Whatever you decide to use, we will be looking forward to seeing what you make!

I made a card using a Baby Blueprint Stamp Set and stitched the edges on my sewing machine ;-)

I started by blending Tumbled Glass, Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers Distress inks over Watercolor Paper and then used a Tim Holtz Rings Stamp inked with Aquamarine Archival Ink of the top. After stamping the Baby Rattle with Jet Black Archival I added texture using a Faded Dots Stencil and White Embossing paste. 

I coloured the rattle with Distress Inks, fussy cut it out and shaped using an embossing tool

I decorated the inside to make it a bit extra special ;-)

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
