However, as she had bought me Crafty Individuals 'Sewing theme' stamps for Christmas, I thought I might alter the box (eventually) using the stamps.
The challenge at Try It On Tuesdays this week is alter something with texture, and that gave me 'kick' I needed to do it.
After painting and inking the box, I stamped the smaller images directly onto the box. I wanted a vintage look and so decided to stamp and then emboss with UTEE for the labels and sewing machine. I stamped and cut out the card before wrapping embroidery threads around.
I also inked the sides and bottom, but only stamped images on the sides
It has been a bit difficult to photograph today, and I had to use the daylight bulb for the photos, and for some reason it looks like a brown smudge on the front of the box, doesn't look like this in daylight!
I am entering this in the following challenges:
Try It On Tuesdays - Alter It with Texture
The Stamp Man - Embellish It
Stamping for the weekend - Embossing
Charisma Cardz - Vintage
Do You Stack Up - Anything Goes
Divas By Design - Anything Goes
Allsorts - Free & Easy
I would just like to say 'hello' to my new followers, I'm thrilled that you like my work enough to want to follow, thank you.
That's it from me, hope you like it . (Don't know what I have done on the bottom of this post, - but for some reason, the text has developed a mind of its own - sorry)
