Tic Tac Toe ~ The Stampsmith Challenge


The lovely Alison (AKA Butterfly) has chosen the current Stampsmith Challenge theme which is Tic Tac Toe. After nor managing to join the last challenge I thought I would get in early this month with my project. I was also delighted to be asked to be a guest designer for the Stampsmith for the the next few months which I'm so looking forward to as they are one of my favourite stamp ranges, just love all the vintage style photo stamps! 

I chose to make a small clasp purse from wool felt for my God daughter Hannah's birthday, and I used the beautiful Rosie stamp on TAP with coffee archival ink. The flower is also wool felt and cut using a sizzix die and then machine and hand embellished, with a metal button at the centre. I chose the diagonal line of pink, stitches and metal. 

Hoping that the sun is going to come out and play like last weekend as it was glorious wasn't.

Thank you for all your lovely comments I so enjoy reading them all. 

Take care and Happy Crafting xxx
