Fabulous Floss,OCC & Mojo Monday #188


Jen, of Our Change of Art is the hostess these next 2 weeks over @ Our Creative Corner challenge blog.  She is really talented.  If you have a moment, you should really pop on over and take a look at her work.  She has given us a challenge this week, to use embroidery floss on our card or other papercraft item.  I don't really use much floss, and sewing on a card is pretty minimal for me.  So, to say the least, my card was a bit of a struggle.  I had a few ideas, and here is what I came up with.
I used the sketch from Mojo Monday #188 as my starting point.  And then grabbed a stamp set that I haven't inked in quite a while.  Then kinda worked it all out from there.  I stamped the thread holder and fussy cut it out.  Wrapped floss around it, to give it some presence.  (yes, the needle is stamped and fussy cut-out, too.)  For the trio of coffee filter flowers, I tied some knots in the centers with a different colored pink floss.  The pattern papers are so old, I doubt you could find them if you wanted.  I believe that they are from 7 years ago.  And they were scraps in my pink scrap file.
Thank you for looking!  Now, go create something uniquely YOU and enter our Fabulous Floss challenge!

This is really pretty, Sharon - your floss holder is a very clever idea! The colors and papers are so beautiful - lovely job on the challenge!

Your card is lovely, Sharon! Those papers are beautiful - love the colors. So clever to wind the floss on the stamped bobbin. Those images are wonderful too! I'll bet it was fun to get them out and use them again.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs,
Linda
