Less is More - Week 77 - Theme

Morning everyone.  Well, it's another glorious day.... blue skies and sunshine - fingers crossed it lasts!  The latest challenge over at Less is More is:

Week 77
Theme week once more and this time it's
For this it could be machine or hand sewing.. faux or stamped... you could even use sewing related images... just let your imagination roam!

Ahha I thought - this is right up my street..... yippee!  I'll start on the easiest bits first - a white textured 6x6 card blank and a piece of black ribbed card.  I have done a zigzag stitch in silver thread around the black mat.  For the topper I have cut out a leaf shape from Art Emboss pewter metal and placed it on a piece of soluble fabric and free machined over the metal and all around the outside area.  When it was "done" I washed out the soluble fabric and was left with the topper you can see.  I've added a close-up photo of the leaf on the main photograph.

Thanks for dropping by.


  1. I'm glad I've found someone up whose street this challenge was!! The stitching looks fab on the black card stock - so neat!
