Izzy at work today, ready to go home...
Gracie Lou who and J in the backyard this afternoon.
playing with both of them. And so, hugs are being enjoyed even though he will have over a month of self quarantines after the fact.
This week the Inspiration challenge is headed to the Pippin Poppycock site where they have some really beautiful shots organized with colors of yarn fibers, and I kept coming back to this one because of the color combo as I have a little stack of backgrounds made during DTGD to play with on hand.
find this challenge here at SCS to play along with us, Hope you are all doing well this Labor day weekend. Thanks for stopping by.
Distress Oxide inks on embossed panels.A few of these were used on various other challenges over the week and they can be seen in the previous post.
Now, this is something I did when I was making my sample for Lori's challenge and normally what I do to hold something in place to run it through my sewing machine ( yeah, I don's sew fabric very often I am much more likely to sew on cardstock) I wrap say lace or ribbons to the back side of the project and use a piece of scotch tape that is more towards the center and not where I am planning to stitch to help keep it from wiggling. but, this time I have the sentiment on a piece of vellum that I had cut the edges with a die the same as the panel below it and I wanted the scallops to align and for some ( who knows why reason I decided to try using the washi tape to hold the top piece of vellum on. ) and I was nervous about this as the peachy cup below that was PTI sweet blush cardstock ( and it pills and shreds if you do much of anything to it) so, I was really hesitant to try this as I could just see all the stitches turning out OK and then having the cup peel when the tape was removed. but, it worked the finished card can be seen two posts down from this one. :) so, that's my tip of the day. in other news the winds have been blowing the other direction for a few days now so, its been nice to see mountains and be able to breathe again lately. I hope you are all doing well, Thanks for stopping by.
So, Diane has a challenge and I kinda sorta did what I read in the title of it rather than what she really asked for. ( it happens, I read the words and I get an idea and its easier to just give in and make it than let it sit around hollering for attention in the depths of the thought pool) kwim? This dog is from Impression Obsession ( water colored on wc paper here) and the sentiment is from stamping bella tiny townie loves her dog set. This one is 5" square in real life, the frames were made with some stitched square dies from scraps of things previously made. ( if I make a frame sometimes I make a second one smaller from the drop piece and set it aside )
