Sew Mad!!!

Good morning Cupcake lovers! This week we're being sponsored by Paper Pretties who are offering one lucky winner this adorable stamp.
We're also having three generous icing on the cake sponsors this month, please check our blog for all the info. You'll find the candy winner there too!

So what do you need to do? The lovely Jane has chosen "Sew Mad!" as a theme and you can include faux or real stitching to your work.

I made good use of my sewing machine....well, I had a few mad moments when it broke down, but I fixed it! Guess it's complaining as I don't use it often enough, ha!

The old dictionary page is covered with Color Box white ink to mute the text, you could also use gesso or acrylic paints. I did choose a page with words that fits in with the wanted feel, (the text is in Swedish if you wonder), any unwanted words can be erased with an adhesive tape or covered with paint or embellies.

I also used:
Tingtura boy stamp
Vilda Stamps splatter background
Texts are Simon Says Stamps and a Craft Stamper freebie
Exchangeable's clear alphabet
Memories and Distress Inks
Alpha Markers to colour eyelets
QK cog die
