Sewing Room

Evening all

I hope you are all well on this very wet day........ when will the rain stop and its so cold.

Todays card is something very different no colouring! I wanted to try out one of the Tim Holtz dies that I had for Christmas and this is the result. I embossed the mannequin after cutting it out as it looked to bear without. I then out thread round the bobbin to make it look authentic.

The tape round the mannequin is ribbon that i got from a craft shop, was not sure what I would do with it when i brought it, but I knew I would find a use.
