You are sew special with Tonic Exquisite Stamps

Whilst moving in to my new crafting area which the lads built for me for my birthday, I came across a wallet full of pre-stamped images. One of the images was a part coloured "It Girl", (from the Exquisite Stamps range from Tonic Studios) and that set a plan for a card in motion ...

Taking the stamp, I decided to make her dress out of material and lace, so stamped the dress three times. I cut each layer slightly shorter each time, to give the dress volume. The lace was added to the longest layer.

 
I then stamped the head and arms, colouring them with Nuvo Creative pens. I added this layer over my material layers to hide all my gluing.


Using the Claire lower case alphabet, I created my sentiment and placed the words in different places. I then added some sewing themed embellishments to my project as my finishing touch. The papers were also found in a scraps box and I am not sure where they are from ... sorry.


Thoroughly enjoyed making my card as to love a bit of paper piecing, although this time it was with material!
