Yes, I know, I said I would make a better attempt to blog, but well - I work two jobs. My schedule can be kind of crazy. I work a mixture of days and, on occasion, overnight. A boy has got to eat and sleep sometime. However, I DO have three more projects to share soon (already photographed) because I HAVE been making things here and there. And, I have a list of things I want to make.
I’m here today with a card for the Moxie Fab Trigger Tuesday Challenge. It seems that I miss challenges a lot of the time, and I am so happy I found the time to participate in this one because the trigger is totally up my alley. A vintage embroidery pattern:
I love everything about this, from the pattern itself, to the colors. So, I tried my best to make a project that reflected the original. I bought Lovely Layers from Papertrey a while ago (like, October!) and I hadn’t the chance to ink it up, but it was perfect for this.
Lot’s of stamping here! I made this knowing that I was going to send it in the mail, so I wanted to keep it kind of, “simple.” The majority of the stamps from Lovely Layers. I went back in with an Inkadinkado flourish to add more detail. I also used some dots from Polka Dot Basics II, and a leaf from WPlus 9’s Folk Art Florals. To give it more of a fabric look, I took my Just Jeans background and stamped over the entire panel. I do this when I want to add more texture.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a blessed day.
