SO SALSA - Stitches


Christa from So Salsa Challenge has invited me to join in....well, I never need an excuse to do some stamping and getting inky too :O))

The theme for this week is "Stitches"

Here is my effort:

The main stamp is from Lost Coast Designs, although those "ladies" are somewhat dubious - I think they are actually men in drag :O))

The inks are Mustard Seed and Aged Mahogany on the edges and Dried Marigold and Dusty Concord in the middle. I waterbrushed their dresses to add a little glamour - well, they need a whole lot more help but it is a start!!

The stitch stamps are by HOTP (I think as they were a gift) and the words are made up from a cheapy alpha set my friend Dan got me in a dollar store.

Loving this challenge Christa, thanks for setting it!

Hels this is stunning- I love all the effects you create. Is it actually ink or ink pads you use to colour?

Hels said...

Thanks everyone, Dawn, I use ink pads but blend the ink on with Cut & Dry foam :O))
