Dressmaking time at Fashionable Stamping Challenges
Well I am back after a lovely relaxing holiday, and hopefully I will be able to do some crafting later today as I am now suffering withdrawal symptoms from no crafting for over 2 weeks - wish I could take it all with me when I go on holiday - but would the plane be able to take off!!
Managed to complete my DT card for Fashionable Stamping before I went away and this was a real pleasure to make, as I love vintage and sewing themes, which is the challenge this fortnight. I distressed the base card with Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar and Antique Linen before Stamping with Hero Arts French Script, and the DressForms and Corset stamps from Crafty Individuals. The bill head was also distressed with the same inks before being added to the card. The corsets and DressForm were then stamped again and cut out after being coloured with Distress Inks. The ribbon started life as mauve, but after Domestos - it was the perfect shade!
I have just had a look at the cards over at FSC made by the DTs and there are some fabulous creations, so please pop over to be suitably inspired, and of course, there is always a fabulous prize on offer from our permanent sponsor, Marina of Cottage Crafts, and now there is a Saturday 'Spotlight' (I have lots to catch up on - holidays do interfere with crafting).

Nearly forgot to mention - came home to find that I had won some of Brenda's Recycling candy. Not only dose she have a great blog, but she is a very generous lady, and if you haven't visited her, please do.
Well that's it for now, need to catch up on what has been happening in blogland! Hope to see you soon.
