Vintage Sewing


Hi Everyone, thanks for stopping by to see my Sewing Theme inspired card for my DT post at Cheery Lynn Designs, I hope it gives you some inspiration with your dies, so let me take you through the techniques on my card.
I started my cutting my 2 base stacker layers and highlighted the faux stitching with a black pen, layering on my doilies.


My sewing machine - I coloured the handle and base with a Gold pen, highlighting the die detail with a fineliner pen and rubbing a little Black Archival ink around the edges to add age. The centre body of the machine I used  Stampendous Aged Black embossing powder, adding a little thread onto the bobbin and machine, gluing in place. This now reminds me of my Grandmother's sewing machine.


My Tailors Dummy - I placed a little masking tape behind a piece of white cardstock to cut my mannequin out, this helped hold all the negative pieces in place. I then heat embossed with a Platinum shade. I die cut a layer in patterned paper, layering on the bodice section only, which then gives highlight to my Platinum shade underneath. Finishing off with a little net and a ribbon I gathered with a few hand sewn stitches.


My images were tattered at the edges, then added some more Platinum embossing powder to help frame them and layering onto some Cheesecloth. My die cut scissors I coloured with a Grey Copic Pen, heat setting some Clear embossing powder and adding a touch of bling. My Tea Rose was shaped on my embossing mat and I added a little snap fastener to the centre.


I finished off my card with various sewing themed embellishments in my stash.
