I had some time today to 'just play' ... back to creating for teams and deadlines tomorrow! I decided to look up a couple of my favorite challenge blogs to see what they had posted for challenges and found some fun ones to play along with this afternoon :)
The JustRite Friday Inspiration Challenge #40 is to make a card or project using fall colors and JR stamps. I used the Applique set - one of my all time favorites! I decided to make a miniature quilt with the Applique stamps, stitched it together with my sewing machine, bound the edges with twill tape, spritzed it with gold, tattered rose and vintage cream Glimmer Mists from Tattered Angels and then added some champagne colored pearls to the centers of each square! I hung my sweet little paper quilt using mini clothespins and hung it on a line with rope twine!
The sketch I used for this design is this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch #19 ... they want us to use stamping as the main focal point of our design which I did with my little quilt! Such a sweet and simple sketch and I just blinged mine up a bit with a few spritzes and embellies!!!
