Sewing Project

The Yahoo The Rubber Inkers are having a technique card swap this month and the technique is paper piercing.  I have been wanting to use this Tim Holtz stamp set that I purchased awhile ago and thought these stamps would be great with this technique.

My starting point was the background paper I had in my collection that had a ruler design on it. I also used several other coordinating pattern papers for the card, stamping some images on to the pattern paper and arranging them into a collage.  I then paper pierced around my sentiment and then with a needle and thread I stitched around the sentiment. 
I used Tea Dye Distress Ink edge the project and added some black bling to complete the project. 

Thank you for stopping by today.  Remember to do some creative for yourself and have a wonderful day.


I would like to enter this card in the following swaps:
