It's finally official so I'm allowed to say what I've been so excited about over the past few weeks! I've become a member of the Design Team for Crafty Cardmakers Challenge Blog, I'm so excited and honoured to have been offered a place on the team and can't wait to get involved!
Our Challenge this fortnight, hosted by our leader Lin, is Stitching and Lace. We would like to see some stitching, either hand, machine or faux on your project as WELL as some lace, real not faux. There is an added twist of using a sewing related image or stamp, if you have one, but it is not a requirement.
Here's my creation, it's a cover for the diary I have bought to keep track of craft challenges and cards to be made:
I've had this project in mind for a while now and as it fitted the challenge theme perfectly I had to make it! I've used swirly grungeboard for the cover which I have coloured using Peacock Feathers distress ink. I've handstitched it together using a strong cream coloured thread. A stamped sentiment (a recent freebie with a magazine) was placed behind the bookplate along with some cream cotton lace. An Idea-ology Hitch Fastener keeps the book closed and I have made a couple of page-markers using cotton thread and some Philosophy Tags. Love Tim Holtz products!!!
Now head on over to the challenge blog to see the fab creations of my fellow teamies and why not have a go yourself?
Thanks for taking the time to look, I'll be back again soon x
