A Stitch..........




or two or three or four......Machine or Hand.....which ever way you choose it's all good....cause that's what we're looking for over at Simon Says Stamp and Show!!

BRING ON YOUR STITCHING!!!

My creation began with a piece from Arts Parts Sample painted with white acrylic paint and distressed with Sepia Archival Ink.

Then I decided to push my comfort zone and work with Pink and Purple......so not part of my color pallette!!!

After I colored my piece of canvas I stamped it with one of my all time favorite background stamps!!! with one of my favorite verbage stamps and STITCHED on some vintage buttons.


To accent my wall hanging, I mixed a combo of Purple and Pink paint to match the Distress colors and I painted the Arts Parts Heart. Dabbed on a bit of Fiber Paste and when almost dry I stamped, with Sepia Archival Ink, onto the heart.

And those wings......they were cut from GrungeBoard and embossed, painted, sanded and inked using an Ink Blending Tool.

How could I create anything without have a FLOWER some where on my piece. And there you have it.......MY STITCHED creation!!!

So.....pull out your needle and thread or sewing machine and create away!!!



Link your creation up to the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog and you might just win....

Wowee Lynne - you are truly back in action. Loving the riot of colour and energy on your blog on my way to this post. I love the textured wings - they look just wonderful with the heart - can't get enough of Art Parts either. Great piece and lovely subtle tones...
