Welcome! I love it when you stop by and I am so glad you are here! Enjoy your stay!
Today I have another card for the challenge over at Shopping Our Stash. This week we want you to make a card using your favorite things. I made a list of my favorite things and went from there. Here's my list:
1. Images from Mo Manning
2. Any of Mo's fairy images
3. Anything autumnal
4. Antique lace
5. Machine sewing
6. Antique buttons
9. Coloring with my Prismacolor pencils
And here is what I came up with:
This is Fall Fairy Jensen and yes I have used him before. I love coloring the pumpkin. I sort of get lost in my own little world adding touches here and there.
I added stitching with my machine, and I used a heavier thread that really stands out. The buttons are from my grandmother's stash. I inherited her sewing things 22 years ago so those are very vintage. The lace is also from her stash. I threaded the edge of it with some deep orange silk thread from my stash. The feathers are brand new. My local craft store had these feather boas and I couldn't resist. I had a white one and this creamy one had to come home with me! That's cheese cloth peeking out from behind the upper right corner of the image, also from my stash! I tore the paper in a couple places and inked the edges with my Tim Holtz Walnut distress ink.
The DP is so amazing I didn't add much to it. I did give it an extra matte and I like how it looks. Wow! Another way to use more of my stash!!
