Hope you all had a lovely weekend and you're now all refreshed and raring to go for the new week ahead!
Over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog we have a brand new challenge starting today and this week is ~ ANYTHING GOES! Yes, you can do anything you want, there are no rules ~ just craft!!
For those who know me well, you will know that I love fashion and I adore the work of Tom Ford, Alexander McQueen, Dior, Lulu Guinness and Karl Lagerfeld. So with this in mind, when I started working on this challenge piece at the end of March (I work well in advance, lol) and because as soon as I saw the gorgeous new Runway stamps by Tim Holtz, I just knew these stamps were my thing and I would have to use them and was inspired to create a triptych of tags using yellow as a main feature because that was the colour that was so heavily featured in the spring/summer catwalk shows.
Now to move onto the next stage and for this I cut three pieces of watercolour card, 13.5 x 7cm and using the City Scapes stamp set, I individually stamped the London, Paris and New York skylines across the bottom of each piece of card. I then went on to stamp the Runway models above each of the skylines.
Machine stitch around the outside of each panel and then attach them to the tags using foam pads.
I really hope you've enjoyed this tutorial and love my finished project. If you need any further inspiration for this challenge, then you need look no further than our blog to see all the wonderful creations from all the very talented Design Team members and every week, one lucky random participant has the chance to win a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp. Good luck....
Thank you so much for all your visits today and hope you all have a great week ahead
