Imagine Being Inspired

I was definitely inspired this morning when I saw what the Sunday Stamper (Hels) had as her theme this week – A Stitch In Time. Sadly I don’t sew nearly enough these days but I love buying the sewing stamps. Especially this set from Indigo Blu called “Sewing Mends The Soul“.

Also entering into the very first challenge at A Vintage Journey with an “Anything Tim Challenge”. Hop on over and have a look at the Design Team’s work because if you are a Timmy fan then this is the place for you to be inspired, the design team samples are gorgeous.

Didn’t clear away the DI colours … Mustard Seed, Tumbled Glass and Antique Linen that I used on my last post which just shows how much I like the combination because I have used the same again. Used a movers and shapers die called Imagine and a PaperArtsy stamp set called Buttons 3. I totally got deep down and dirty with this make but hey that’s what this crafting lark is all about plus I didn’t really get a sewing machine for Andrew!!!!

    I am so loving your color choices, Shirley! Great texture with the torn areas and that sentiment is too funny! Lovely “Tim” inspired piece and I am over the top thrilled to see this loveliness at A Vintage Journey! Hugs and I also have neglected my sewing and keep meaning to use my machine on paper!

  17. Shirley…your piece for A Vintage Journey is wonderful! I really love the feeling I get when looking at it. The torn edges, the soft colors, the wonderful distressing….all perfectly done! Those PaperArtsy stamps are really awesome. Love your sentiment, too! So funny. Thanks so much for sharing your art with us at A Vintage Journey! <3 Candy
