Crafting time

Debs, Mandi and I managed to get some crafting time together during this weekend and we all made several ATC's. We always do have a great time and it is even more special when you can craft together with others. Debs did some of her new 'Art work' style, Mandi stamped and coloured and I did several different things but I did make this parchment one:



I started by using a straightforward grid pattern from Pauline Loweth's Gridwork Book.  I wanted to add something bright and different and I remembered these pretty sequins I had bought at a Show - as you do - and stitched them in place with holographic thread and a centre bead.  As an ATC must have a title we racked our brains and came up with 'Bombay Mix' as we felt the sequins looked very Indian in colour and style.

  2. WOW, this is fabulous Carol! It is so perfectly lined up with lovely colours. Thanks for your comment on my Reflections card. This new layout of the blog drives me mad. I had a problem linking the card to the post and not the blog so deleted everything and started again and then I left the label out. Yes it is Debbie Moore and I have corrected the post. Thanks!

  3. This is so pretty Carol and you have put a lot of work into it sewing all the sequins on. A great way to use them though and they look very effective. xx
