Paper Saturday and a Sewing Tag

Hi everybody!
It's weekend already, and that means it's time for Manon's Paper Saturdays, where you can link up with any sort of paper creation.
I made a tag, once again using corrugated card, partly peeled and painted, and then stamped ( although you can't see much of the stamping). The Sewing items are all stamps from Chocolate Baroque. I stamped them onto some canvas scraps left over from other projects using Adirondack espresso, cut them out, and then painted them with water colours, using shades of brown and a little pink. I love the texture this gives. The thimble somehow reminded me of a hat....The buttons are also made of canvas, and sewn on. I cut the pin-cushion twice, made some holes in it, and added the pins. The sentiments are also in the set from Chocolate Baroque, I fringed the edges and did a few stitches with brown cotton. Sewing is not really my thing, but I tried. I am also linking to FSC, where the challenge this time is  'Sew 'n' Sew'. I am also linking to Our Creative Corner - forgotten things: the little scraps tucked away and waiting to be used.





Have a good weekend you all, take care, and thanks for visiting!

  22. Isn't it neat how different people focus in on different things. I was captivated by the trim with the spools and the button and also such a sexy mannequin!

  29. Love the use of canvas scraps on this. It looks so vintage. Thanks for joining us at Our Creative Corner. Hugs, Jenny x
    p.s. it would really help next time if you link your actual post rather than just your blog when entering the challenge as it is difficult to leave a comment otherwise. Thanks x
