Last week on SCS there was a challenge to use up scraps of paper. I loved this challenge! I have so much nice scrap laying around. Just strips of stuff here and there. Sewing on cards goes wonderfully with a vintage theme so I pulled out this stack of presents that I haven't used in quite a while. Colored with copic markers. The pp is My Mind's Eye (Tres Jolie). The background I used my very handy B-line design polka dot stamp. I inked in craft white then embossed in detail white powder. I dirtied up the edges with some Close to Cocoa Classic ink. The prima I colored with my copic to match my focal image.
Can you see I sewed around the outside of the focal image. You do this all the time in quilting when you want an applique piece to stand out.....so I thought it could work here too.
I got a TON of wonderful stamps from MFT yesterday....I get to play with them but can't show them to you quite yet. I will soon!!!!
