Oldie but Goodie
I FINALLY got the PTI stamp set "Quilter's Sampler". I bought it "used" from a PTI forum member. Once it arrived at my house, I started wondering "What took me so long?!" I used Guide Lines Grid paper to line up my little patchwork squares (worked like a charm!). I colored them in with watercolor pencils and a waterbrush. I then sponged over the whole piece with Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress ink. For a final step, I stamped over the whole piece with the Canvas Backgrounder stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms (inked up with PTI Vintage Cream ink). Distressed the edges and "flicked" them up after I taped the piece down, and then it really started to look like fabric! The cute hearts are from the "Text Objects" stamp set by Verve Stamps. This card was for Splitcoaststampers' Color Challenge this week...Cherry Cobbler, Pretty in Pink, and Melon Mambo!
