Vintage Sewing Machine Digital Stamp Colored With Copic Markers
I turned the sketch 90 degrees and framed the image with a paper doily that I made from a photo-corner punch.  After creating the die-cut I spritzed with Studio Calico's Clay Mister Huey and added a bunch of little CTMH pearl adhesives. The papers behind the image are from Prima Marketing and Kaiser Craft.
Fabric Paper Rose Layered on Flower Layered on Buttons
There are a lot of layers in this card!  It is a bold image but I wanted to soften it because of the era of the treadle machines.  I chose soft colors for the quilt and then matched the papers to fit.  It would have been smarter to find papers first and then color, but I got carried away coloring so I forgot my plan!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today!


  1. Love, love, LOVE the layers! It is just beautiful!
