More inky fun .... and stitching

I had another fun day at the Stamp Attic and this time with Sarah Anderson, who really had us thinking outside the box.  So  more techniques under my belt..  I am not sure how much we were supposed to achieved because a lot of gassing was done as well, but for me the camaraderie is all part of the fun of doing these workshops.

This is one of the cards I produced, and it really fits the bill at Moving Along with the Times, who to see sime stitching.  I haven't added stitching to a card before, but methinks I am going to be in the future, so will have to get my machine out.

My inky background was made with several colours of Adirondack colour sprays, which were then smudged together with a baby wipe and then overstamped with some text.  The image is Time To Fly from Paper Relics, and some papers were paper pieced.

To top the afternoon off Sue Roddis came in, and she had with her the most amazing piece of work.  It on her blog here.

I am also entering this for

Think Ink #28 challenge
PaperPlay #35 - In stitches

My problem with going to the Stamp Attic is that I cannot but help coming home with a bag of crafty stash, and this is on top of what I bought on Wednesday.

Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your comments.
