Musical stitches


I'm all a bit out of sync this week as I have come down with a horrid cold. The result of being cocooned for more than two years and then daring to mingle with people...and their germs!

I've been joining in with the #tagalongwithIsa challenges on FB and this month I thought I'd have a go at the ATC swap. The theme is music and stitching.

I started with a background stamp over Distress Oxide ink, and coloured the keys in with white gel pen. 

I used gel medium through a GiogioCraft stencil and sprinkled over red embossing powder. When heated it gives a lovely bubbly textured finish.


I'm not a big sewer and although I have a sewing machine, it's not been out in decades. I pricked a pattern out on card and then sewed through the holes to create the chevrons.


Last of all I added the words from a set of Joy! stamps and a few red spatters. I'll find out in due course who I am swapping with.

Hope this week brings you some fine tunes to dance to. Thank you for stopping by xxx
