Purple Thread.

  The theme for Less is More 67  challenge this week is "One Layer, Use three stamps"




So I chose three stamps from a Magazine giveaway set,




Used a purple Momento ink pad, stamped the little fancy frame, and masked one of the other stamps in the set placing post it notes over the stitching to leave just the wording and stamped it within the frame. I added a touch of colour and shading using Copics added some glossy accents to the button, scraping over the thread just before it dried to remove the shine from that area.


 


It doesn't show up very well in the photo but I used a Sakura Jelly Roll pen and scribbled onto plastic, using a damp paintbrush I added some of the purple sparkle to the thread. I'm hoping that the LIM ladies let me off with the purple jelly roll blanket stitching ,it ties the card together I think.




Thanks for stopping by,
Enjoy the weekend,
Julie.x

I love the sewing theme you've got going on here Julie and I really like the vintage look from only adding a touch of colour. Vicky x

Well I LOVE the blanket stitching. It is still very clean and simple. And if they don't like it..."sew what!"
