A collaberation

Hello everyone, I have a project to show you today which is a combined project made by Lesley and myself using the new sewing stamps from Chocolate Baroque. We decided to do a shared card when we were in Portpatrick last weekend at Glenda first workshops.

I started the card by masking a section off at the top and bottom of an 8" x 8" card blank, and then coloured the middle section using a selection of yellow, orange and red toned inks. I added a selection of haberdashery images to create the background. I removed the masks, and then stamped the border from the The Sewing Room stamp set above and below the coloured section. I coloured a spare piece of white card using the same colours of inks as the main background, and then posted the project to Lesley.

Lesley stamped and embossed the embroidered flower from the Floral Mannequins set, five times onto the coloured card and then fussy cut it out. She used the sentiment from the Thinking of You Sentiments clear stamp set and and finished the card by attaching the flowers with gel adhesive.

I love the way that Lesley has used the coloured card to achieve a graduated use of colour to the flowers cascading across the card, and her choice of sentiment goes perfectly with our joint project.

Lesley and I live several hours away from each other, and often wish that we could craft together. This card is proof that if the desire is there, you can achieve that goal. As Lesley has mentioned on the Design Team blog, from its conception to completion, this card completed a round trip of approximately 633 miles!

My projects from Glenda's workshop are not completed as yet, I have a bit to do on most of the items, but the classes were so much fun, and it was great to craft along with the other participants. We created some decorated blocks, using various collage techniques, and here are my works in progress, I will show you the finished articles at a later date:

We also spent a session creating some very colourful tags, using a variety of techniques. Again, I have yet to finish mine, and I will show you them once I have added the images and embellishments:

Thanks for stopping by, xx

Your joint project is a lovely idea - the border stamp adds a lovely frame to the vibrant inked panel & I really like the way the black & white balance the vibrancy of the central section. As you say the cascading flowers from yellow to the reds really complements the background beautifully & I love the aptness of the sentiment.
