While blurfing today, I came across a great inspiration challenge at Stamping Around. The photo inspiration was this catalog cover for Land's End, and the instant I saw it, I knew I'd have to play along. So I dug out a Stampin' Up! set that hasn't seen ink in centuries, and went to work with my Stamp-a-ma-jig. I stamped my roses, cut them out, and distressed them with Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress Inks. I aged my white twill ribbon (www.twilltape.com) with Antique Linen as well, then attached it and some burlap using my sewing machine and a straight stitch all around the edges. I thought the burlap echoed the texture of the basket - it's a fun accent to play with, but can get unruly unless you sew it down!
Just a little enabling before I go..... Friday and Saturday (Feb. 26 and 27), Cornish Heritage Farms is awarding double CHF points with every rubber order, AND giving away a free spool of ribbon for online orders of $75 and over. I'm just sayin'... :) I'm off to watch some Olympic hockey..... Have a great weekend!
