Friends Layout for Visible Image

This week I wanted to focus on the gorgeous The Sewing Room stamp set from Visible Image. I fell in love with all the elements from this set and used many of them on the layout: the perfect sentiment "Friends", the measuring tape, the dress form, the two buttons and the stitch line.  I think the stitch line will be a learning curve for me when you are trying to fit it into a shape smaller than the stamp length!! I just consider my stitch lines "rustic" on my patchwork squares background!!

I stamped and embossed the dress form with a great textured embossing powder: Ranger Antiquities California Stucco. I fussy cut it out and then used the Bronte Border stamp to add a subtle script pattern. I added a bit lace and a Prima Finnabair metal piece to finish it. You can see above where I added the two stamped buttons and measuring tape.

I also added the Ripped Fishnet stamp as texture in Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink and the Grunge Polka Dot with some gesso to add more interest to the background. Here you can see a layered chipboard piece that I used from the BoBunny Avenues collection. I added a few Prima flowers from my stash to finish the layout. 

I really love how this turned out and I hope you enjoyed looking! If you like any of the stamps, simply click on the link or image to head to the shop.
