Anything to do with the hobby of sewing interests me. But at this point in time, the small projects are much more appealing to me!
To start with, I wanted to try the "Make it Monday" technique at Papertrey Ink's blog, Capture the Moment. This week it was tissue texturing...very reminescent of the old tissue paper layering with the Mod Podge. And surprisingly, after trying several types of adhesive, that's what actually worked best! I love the way it softens the colors of your papers. I HAD to use my pattern paper with and without tissue so that the card would reflect both contrasting versions. I even tissued the sentiment tag...and pulled out the old sewing machine to stitch around the edge.
Then I used the button card and the button dies from the Button Boutique Collection. Too easy!
Lastly, I dug into my sewing stash for some mini ric-rak. I topped it off with an actual OLD safety pin.
I LOVE THIS TECHNIQUE!
