Hi! Hope this finds you well and happy! Loving this spring like weather we are enjoying in my part of the UK. So nice to see the sun shine!
Well here I am with my DT post for the MilkCoffee Showcase and the showcase theme today is Stitching: Real or Faux.
Now I always admire stitching on cards and marvel at those who do it. Last year I won a sewing machine through Creativity magazine and the poor thing has never seen the light of day! Well I thought I would change that and branch out into unknown territory. However, as I was unable to find the power cable or the pedal (put somewhere safe of course) that put pay to that! Saved in the final hour some might say. I couldn't possibly comment!
So here is my creation for the showcase and it is rather a crazy affair I have to say. The fabulous image is Tiffany in Wonderland and I went all ‘Lewis Carroll’ on the poor girl!
The papers are Antique Library from Wild Rose Studio which I got from My Mum’s Craft Shop here and the clock die is by Tattered Lace. I love this die it is so quirky (bit like me) and I felt the need to draw a crackle effect on the face for an aged look.
I was going to incorporate a ‘Drink Me’ bottle into the design but plumped for a cup and teapot instead, well I had some stamps that were suitable! I also wanted a Mad Hatter top hat on there somewhere too (I just want everything) but as I lucked out with that one I had to draw my own. This may explain why it’s a bit wonky. All the images are coloured with my fab Spectrum Noir pencils which I am loving!
The playing cards are from a Christmas cracker (yes, really) and the hearts were cut using a Papermania Palm Punch.
So to the actual theme of the showcase; I used hand stitching down the spine of my ‘book’ and faux doodle stitching around the paper edges. See, I managed to get it in there somewhere!
