TSC8: Travel

Being submersed in my stitching for the past few months, I've not managed to get my head round DT work but the current Stampsmith Challenge is Travel and I've put this picture hanging together using the Beach Landscape photostamps and the middle image is from the "Those were the days" plate. I've used a thin sheet of cork (which I've had for YEARS), as backing and threaded the images together with some natural coloured twine.  Gold coloured Beadazzles are used along the bottom of each image.

Carol, I was so caught up with OWOH that I haven't visited sooner to say how much I loved your "take" on the theme. To bring all those stamps together into a hanging is clever. Like it lots.
Maybe not too long before we see some more of your stitching.

Oh, what I shame I missed this project before (how did I manage to do that??? sorry...). These stamps are just gorgeous, they would fit perfectly the theme for SS, the light house is just fab! I love the vintage sepia, it gives it such a nostalgic feel...just stunning!

Neet said...

This is beautiful Carol - love the subtle colours you have used - they work so perfectly with these images.
Love your additions (cork, twine)as they go so well with this.
