Anything goes at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Hello my lovelies, hope you're having a good weekend. I'm having a lazy one as I'm soooooooooo tired after another busy week at work. No matter how lazy you feel though you have to check out our new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges where we have a nice easy theme of 'Anything Goes'. As always my lovely teamies have created some stunning projects and our generous sponsor Flonzcraft has a fabby $20 voucher up for grabs so I hope you're going to join us! Don't forget though, we're a stamping challenge, no digis allowed!

I've created a sewing themed card using one of my favourite Flonzcraft stamps as the focal image 'Vintage Fashion Girl Thirties 03', its stamped on kraft card and embossed with WOW vanilla white EP. I've layered it up over a button card also embossed with White EP and a tape measure (both from Indigo Blu).  They are layered up over some cheesecloth.The background is Ranger Kraft Resist, which I painted with watered down gesso and wiped with a baby wipe. Once the gesso was dry I stamped the pins and embossed with silver EP, adding little pearls to the heads of the pins.

To finish off I've added a little cotton reel,  lace, ribbon, a wooden button with a twine bow and a brass scissors charm. I used a White Graph'It Shake pen for the faux stitching, omg this is the best white pen I've ever tried , love it!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Brown Sugar: use a charm
Crafters Cafe: vintage/shabby chic
Crafty Ribbons: anything goes
Country View Crafts: Painty Pleasures
Docerela Creations: anything goes
Stamplorations: stamps and stitches
