Sepia challenge



These two ATCs are my entry to this week's challenge at Tuesday Taggers which is 'Sepia'. I had two little practice pieces painted with crackle paints which I stamped with two images using staz-on - they came out suitably 'distressed' and since I finished it a bit more of the crackle has fallen off but I was aiming for that kind of look..... well that's my excuse. The challenge this week is sponsored by The Stampman There are £15 worth of vouchers up for grabs and there are some lovely entries from the design team, including a fantastic mini suitcase with a travel book inside. Do have a look.



I made these tags today for a challenge on the Docrafts forum. They are loosely based on an article in this month's craft stamper and were really fun and quick to do (well, if you ignore the inevitable fight to set my ancient sewing machine up). Basically I just found a load of scraps and put them randomly on some iron on interfacing, ironed them on (!) and then sort of crazy stitched with the machine all over it. The main image was stamped on to tissue paper (although fabric would have been nice too) and then attched by stitching. I then used a needle & thread (my mother would be proud) to do a little bit of hand stitched beading and attach some embellies before mounting on another piece of black card (well the back was a bit of a mess). Voila!! I have left the sewing machine out in case I get the urge to make some more...

These are great - I love machine stitching on things. I've seen it done on metal too and it looks fab. Where's a sewing machine when you need one?
