Sewing/stitching is this week’s challenge on the Drunken Stampers Challenge blog. It’s perfect timing that this stamp (Noel Doll) came from Impression Obsession as I had it in mind for this challenge. [Just a warning, you’ll most likely be seeing Christmas cards on the blog for a little while :)]
I wanted to use sticky back canvas to represent Santa’s Sack. I alcohol inked the white sticky back canvas with Red Pepper alcohol ink with blending solution to give it an uneven look. Once it was mounted onto some green cardstock, I pierced it then stitched it with green embroidery thread. The image was coloured with Copics and embellished with Polar White Flowersoft, Cool Highlight Microfine glitter and Glossy Accents. I added a Tim Holtz Cherish Charm that was painted then distressed. I did resist the call of the I-Rock for this card! LOL
I really liked the way this turned out and just may make a few more!

I’ll most likely be hanging out Classic today to get my class ready for next weekend and be making some demo Christmas cards for the store. If you’re around, come by and say hi, show me what cards you’ve made! 🙂 Plus they just got a few stamp orders in so you’ll want to come by and choose some really cool Christmas stamps if you haven’t already gotten them.
Thanks for visiting today and have a relaxing weekend!
