Wk 1 of Anything Goes month at Stampotique

Hi Everyone
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend. After the bedlam of having family round yesterday, today is somewhat calmer, thankfully. So I have managed to steal away a couple of hours for a crafty play. I have made a card for week 1 of Stampotique Designers Challenge anything goes month.
I have taken my newly acquired "Dwindled" stamp for her first outing lightly colouring her with Spectrum Noir pencils. My background is a previously made Brusho background. The semtiment "Always the bridesmaid, and never the bride" has been typed out on my old typewriter, cut out and stuck on and then I have gone around each word with my sewing machine.
The trim that I have edged the card has been made by felting together lace, dyed silk and some heart ribbon scraps, I have then randomly sewn it onto the edge of my card and a little on the right hand corner.
I am entering this into Stampotique Designers Challenge 176 - Anything Goes
Thanks for visiting

  2. This is fabulous in a, as Donna said above, "a bit Miss Haversham" way. I think it's the combination of that wonderful background and the sewn on bits.
