Tag of Sewing - Sewing Room Die by Tim Holtz

I'm sorry about the long silence here on my blog, but my excuse was Paris and of course arranging the things before and after the traveling.

But I'm here with a new make :-)

It was about 1 month ago when I ordered the Sizzix Sewing Room Bigz Die by Tim Holtz and I was really eager to make something with my "new" die. So it was quite a lucky coincidence when I saw the May Challenge of the A Vintage Journey. It was just for me: Sew Special!

So for this Sew Special challenge I have made this:

I will show you how I created the background:

I cut out a tag from chipboard, I put two layers of gesso on it. After drying I painted green with a kind of soft olive green paint. 

I stamped script on it with brown ink.

With one of Tim's stencil I made some measuring background and when it was dry I rubbed some white paint on the surface, more to the edges.

What I used:

embossing paste

self adhesive lace, embroidery thread, organza ribbon


And as I used embossing paste I would also like to enter the Monday Challenge of the Simon Says Stamp: Emboss it!

And also there's a great challenge on Anything But Cute -Celebrate your style!  - where I would like to join too. 

I hope you like it! Happy crafting!
