I am sew excited!!
Well I hope you are all enjoying your weekend! Up here in the north of Scotland we have actually enjoyed 3 days of sunshine...wow..guess that's summer!!
Well as I mentioned I am really excited as I have discovered that the lovely Lorali has designed some stamps. I love her images and Kanban have used her art work quite a lot to make toppers..and I have bought a few of them, but in all honestly I hate using toppers....well we all love that inky feeling!! I always hoped that one day we would have stamps...a couple of weeks ago I discovered Lorali's website...and my wish came true..so many lovely things....also I did have a little bit of pocket money I I sold a few of those wedding cards, so I was able to have a little spending spree....
I Love this image so much its so very quirky...I Just Love sewing images, and I just think this one is fab. My crafting background started with sewing. My Great Grandmother used to make handmade Teddy's for a living...(so I learnt that from her) My Grandmother was a seamstress and did some tailoring. My Mum also is a brilliant seamstress and so from about the age of 10 I was making my own clothes, I would probably still do it now but it is a little disheartening when you know you could buy it cheaper on the high street than make yourself.
I have coloured with copic's and added a little sparkle using a "marvy - deco just glitter" pen.....I have stamped up the corners of the card too, and the papers are from that never ending scrap pile I have!!!
The little embellishments are also stamped images, I have wrapped threads round the cotton reals to add a little texture.
