Sewing Room

Hellooooo long time no blog I have not been able to shake off this bug I caught at the beginning of January.....but I think at last I have got rid of it....shhhhh won't say that too loud...
So today I went into my room of craft and had a little play I had some birthday cards to make but they did not go well.......... so instead I made an ATC for Wicked Wednesday #15 ~Dress/Dress Forms as soon as I read the challenge my brain went down the path of sewing rooms and Dress Forms....must be because in a younger life I used to make all my clothes.... I dug out my Tim Holtz stamps Seamless Experience from Visual Artistry collection and this is what I made...

Background was cut from TH Kraft Resist Paper Pad, I used the one with vintage sewing patterns on.  The dressform was stamped and embossed with Distress Embossing Powder I love the texture, I stamped part of the tape measure onto some binding , the spool circle which is so like the top of a cotton reel was stamped and embossed in black and Distress Stain broken china was used to colour the card I then crumpled it up before attaching.
 So glad I was able to play this week I have missed joining in these challenges hope I will be back soon with some more crafting......

Bye for now
