PaperArtsy Guest Designer Week 4 Part 3

You'll need your sewing machine for this project. Lin Brown's lovely Eclectica stamps were originally designed to be used on fabric and there's no doubt they work brilliantly if you do decide to have a go.


This has to have been my favourite project.  I loved every minute of making it.  As I went so mad making the painted flowers, there were many left over and they look just as good made into fabric tags.


If you want to know how, here's the link.

Technically this was supposed to have been my last project for PaperArtsy but as it's their 10th birthday this month there have been all sorts of special posts and prizes. So my final post is tonight and I can only say if you are a fan of PaperArtsy or would like to start adding their products to your collection, come back tonight for a surprise.

I like the sound of these stamps Carol and love what you have done with them. I think I'd enjoy using them too and will certainly be back for more delights.

These are fabulous Carol, it's been a very inspiring week. Although sewing isn't my thing the next time I get my sewing machine out I'll be trying to do at least a tag likev this. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

Carol, all your projects have been fabulous! This one takes me back to my C&G days (crikey, that's about 20 yrs ago now) when I did a bit of freestyle machine embroidery for fashion design. I love the upside down tulips and the colours are wonderful. Thanks for all the inspiration.

Hugs

I love it and I love the tags. The flowers are a 'must buy' for me and I cannot wait to have a try. Will be a test piece for me with the machining but something I have wanted to try for a long time and this is just perfect for me.
Thank You.
Hugs, Neet xx
