Craft room challenge - Fashion

I'm getting a bit braveer about entering new challenges, so this week I've decided to take part in the Craft Room Challenge  where the current theme is Fashion.

The stamp I used is one I bought at the Make It Show in Farnborough several years ago - I think it is by Dimension 4th. That's the trouble with clear stamps, isn't it? Once you've thrown away the packaging you lose all record of which stamp they are and where they came from.

All the rest of the materials are from my huge backlog of unused stash - the paper must be getting on for 15 years old, which almost qualifies it to be vintage in its own right!

I gave the image a vintage look with distress inks and stamped the "stitiching" with a clear stamp that is actually a straight line, but is flexible enough to be curved  here and there to give a more random "tacking" effect. Now  I need to find somewhere I can buy a pair of shoes for 1/- (5p)


  1. I've never seen this stamp before it's smashing love the period it represents. Vintage know about those a quite a stash of them LOL Thank you for sharing with us at Craft-Room challenge XOXO Zoe

  2. Great card, I still can't believe that stitching is stamped looks so realistic. I have some stitching stamps on order but they aren't here yet. Thanks for the intro to the challenge too, I've just entered, I love fashion challenges.
