DREAM

Simon Says Stamp and Show some STITCHING, FAUX or OTHERWISE.
My image in the centre is from a postcard that Crafty Individuals sent me with an order which I have added to a fabric heart. I have machine stitched the trim into place along with the other trimmings and lace.
I have hand sewn co-ordinated buttons into place and added the text "Dream" to go with my dreamy image.
I transferred the image onto watercolour card using gel medium and added a mica piece over the top to protect.  I have sewn a copper heart to the bottom of my fabric heart and added three co-ordinated buttons to the bottom. The butterfly is cut from card using Tim Holtz movers and shapers die and I have hand sewn a button to the body. The decorative heart has been added to co-ordinated card which has been machine stitched into place.
I have also added the same image on a smaller scale to the inside corner of my card.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x
