Hi my friends. I have hardly touched my stamps lately, except to make cards for classes. I have two to show you from yesterday's technique class. One is embedded embossing. What a simple fun technique. The other is faux burnt edge. This one is a bit more involved with a LOT of sponging. I wanted this card to look like a page that had been doodled on, torn from a notebook, coffee stained, etc. I think I achieved that look. What do you think?
I also have spent some time with my sewing machine. One of the things I've been working on is this stocking for a good friend of my daughter. I traced around one of our stockings for a pattern, then strip pieced the front and trimmed the excess. It went together pretty quickly.
I apologize for the poor quality of the photos. My computer crashed last week and I had to have my operating system reinstalled. So I'm using a new photo software and either I'm clueless, or it's just very limited. I haven't been able to figure out how to sharpen the focus, so I'm going to see what else I can find to use.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
