Bunting or Pennants OOAH Ch 75



Hello friends
Great mask / stencils projects last week such great ideas.
 
Hope you enjoy this weeks as it is Bunting or Pennants
I love bunting so really enjoyed making this Thank You card.
It is a very clean and simple design made with my little bunting die. 
A tricky thing for me as I am a clutter head, and have to fill in space LOL.

Sew N Sew at Fashionable Stamping





Hello friends
Fashionable Stamping have a lovely theme challenge
 "Sew N Sew" and the lovely ladies have some wonderful examples to inspire us.
this theme is right up my street and I made a small sewing box
it has been painted rose pink and distressed.
I have used a resist stamping using clear embossing.
and layered some vintage lace on top and around the sides it is sealed with modge podge.
The paper flowers I have hand made from a small die cut sealed with modge podge and clear nail varnish it makes them go hard.
The small dress form is a die cut and finished with tiny buttons and lace.
The sentiment says
 
"Needlework is a way to capture
Love, Beauty
Peace, and time"
 
How true.
I shall be filling the little box with tiny buttons and pieces of gorgeous vintage lace. 
Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting. Hugs XXX
