In Stitches

This week's theme over at Simon Says Stamp and Show is stitches, real or faux...I went with real, as I already had my sewing machine all set up.

I started by stamping the TC image onto white card, once with teal StaZon ink and a second time with rust StaZon ink, I then added some GM to the teal image and stuck it to a brown ATC blank.   I used my trusty sewing machine with a mix of straight and zig-zag stitching all around for the edging.         From the second image, I cut out the sentiment, using some foam tape for added dimention, and a good coat of DM, as well as some KG for some of the teal areas.     A fairly quick ATC, but lots of fun to make.   Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget there's still time to enter the challenge for this week.    For all the details visit Simon Says Stamp and Show, there's always lots of inspiration there, both from the very talented DT, as well as from the entrants to the challenges each week : )
