2 of My Hobbies Collide

...And I think it turned out pretty alright!! I know I have mentioned before that I am now trying to do all of the Viva La Verve challenges. In case you are not familiar with them, they are posted in the Verve forum on SplitCoastStampers and they are always a sketch challenge with a twist. This weeks twist was to use fabric. Well, do I have fabric!! All of my other hobbies have kind of taken a backseat to stamping this past year, but I have been sewing since I was a teenager and it will probably always be my first craft love. I ended up using this scrap piece of silk that I had been saving for years. I made a pillow with most of it but it was so pretty I had a hard time letting go of the leftovers!! (I really wish there were enough left to make a bodice or a corset!) I also used some trim that I bought for who-knows what project ages ago!

The Details:
Stamp: Beautiful You - Verve
Paper: Crushed Curry, Basic Black, Whisper White, Fabric
Ink: Antique Linen Distress Ink, Basic Black Craft
Misc: Offray Ribbon, Darice Black Gems, Fiskars Corner punch, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Nestabilities Circle

Thanks for visiting me!

Traci, that trim just finished off the card beautifully! Love it when two hobbies collide--like for me, I've scrapped some lay-outs that included Anya :). I gotta check out those Verve challenges!

Lovely Traci...I have fabric too but not good at putting it on paper...yours looks wonderful!
