Sweet Dreamers Challenge #5 Get your Motor Running: For National Sewing Month
I spent most of the day working on new shelving for my stamps down in my sewing room....sadly (for my family) my stamping supplies have overtaken my kitchen pantry..... So, I did not get to stamp. I wanted to post my Sweet dreamers challenge that is due today before I head out to a friends for the evening.
Well, a sewing machine does have a motor....and I thought since it is national Sewing Month it would be an appropriate theme for this card.
I made this with the Salt and Pepper technique from a Technique Junkies newsletter from June 2004. I crazy quilted and sewed the pieces with Sulky thread and different stitches on my sewing machine. I used all SU papers and a sewing machine from Embossing Arts, sentiment from a retired SU set from circa 1998.............
Colored with SU markers and Copics. The trim is Ric Rac in blue and pink intertwined.
I also set up a faux Infinity Board described on Keri Serika's blog- Thanks to Pamela from Firecracker Designs by Pamela for posting this link on her blog , and set up my Ott light for taking the picture. Since i am new to blogging, I am always looking for tips!
