Flight of Thread

I love making cards with these gorgeous new stamps by Laura Kirste Campbell for Penny Black.

A Flight of Thread coordinates with Spellbinders Labels Twenty Nestabilities, which makes cutting it out so easy - especially with the Spellbinders Grand Calibur.  It is then layered into two small motifs from the Parisian Motifs Shapeabilities®

I have kept the image one layer, colouring it using SU Chalks/Pastels and a Blender Pen, I love the depth of colour you can get using a Blender Pen, adds a dimension all of it's own.


Ribbon threaded lace, hand dyed Seam Binding and a Mulberry Paper Rose add a pretty touch.

Finishing off with some Want2Scrap Bling.
