Another challenge - this one for Sunday Postcard Art

I got a third challenge completed today and I went out to lunch and shopped with Charlene!  It was a busy day, but I loved it! 

The week's theme at Sunday Postcard Art is sewing.  I finally  used the Wendy Vecchi stamps I won awhile back!  The skirt and the saying are from the "Fashion Style and Art" set.  I started with an old pattern, using Claudine Hellmuth's Studio multi-medium matte I added 3 layers of pattern to the cardstock base.  I stamped the skirt on to a piece of the pattern (tissue) paper, then pinned it (with "real" straight pins!) to some fabric.  I stamped the saying directly on another piece of fabric.  I sewed the button on the fabric, punched two holes in the paper and pinned using a safety pin.  I sewed the red buttons directly to the card (I used my craft pick to punch holes in the paper to make sewing easier).   The thimble and spool of thread are "Dress It Up" Tiny Collection - Sewing.   I used some alcohol ink metal mixative in silver for the thimble.  I wrapped some red thread around the spool and left a "tail" hanging down.  The tape measure is a photocopy that I had lying around.  The snap is a real snap I used a glue dot to adhere.  I pinked the edges for a finishing touch!

There it is, my first completed Sunday Postcard Art challenge!  Thanks for looking! Have a fabulous week!
