Sewing two-fer

Haven't made a two-fer in quite some time.  While I really prefer to have different entries for challenges, often you can make one work for several.  This not only saves time but if your mojo is lacking it's a great way to enter more challenges with not as much work.

Here's the tag I'm submitting to the CCCv2 challenge over at Studio L3 and Simon Says Stamp and Show.  It features Tim's technique called 'Whitewash Stamping' and can be found on page 47 in the book.

When you participate in these challenges you'll be entered into drawings for gift certificates.  This week's sponsor at Studio L3 is The Funkie Junkie Boutique and they're offering a $25 shopping spree; Simon has a $50 shopping spree.  Both challenge winners are chosen randomly.  I really like this way of doing things because it doesn't pit newbies against those who have been creating art for a long time.  And there's always so much inspiration.  Look at a piece of art and see if you can't use that idea for another challenge but twist it to make your own.

  1. Susan, I have that on the edge die cut but have not used it yet! You did a great job on this tag. I like your seamstress theme and how you've incorporated so many Tim elements on it! Thanks for sharing your art with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

  2. Loving your tag!! It makes me want to go sew something (or get that die out and craft something!) Thank you for sharing and for joining us this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show!

  3. The dress form looks amazing in the white washed way.... love it, and all your goodies along the bottom.
