Sew Thoughtful Card

     I really have a passion for sewing, and absolutely LOVE the Sew Thoughtful and Sew Thankful Cling Mounted Stamps from Red Rubber Designs! It's been a long time since I've actually sewn with fabric, but played around with some black lace and pink organza to make this skirt and corset to put on my mannequin, which I embossed in silver.

The skirt was just glued together, but the corset was stitched on the sides to give it some shape. Then I cut it in half along the front, and hand-stitched the lacing.

     The background of the card was made with a sheet of older Basic Grey "Lucille" paper, which I cut and collaged together using some clear gesso. Then I sprayed it with some pinks and silvers, distressed the edges, and sewed the black zigzags with my sewing machine. 

           The stamped sewing machine, scissors, and sentiment were embossed in black. Then I colored the sewing machine, scissors, and part of the mannequin with Distress Spray Stain (Brushed Pewter). Both stamp sets include buttons, but I used real ones instead for a little dimension. 

Thanks SEW much for your visit!
