Stitch it .... at TioT's


Stitch it
Real or Imitation
at Try it on Tuesdays

Well my hybrid  page  doesn't have real stitching, but if you pop over to TioT's there are some fantastic inspirational pieces to see there.




This is the stencilled background and the stamped [Tim Holtz] images I  wanted to use as a starting place.
I used oxide inks for the background.
The other layers and stitching were added in my digital program [notes in my side bar].

Do any of you remember a 'Shift Dress',
the kind that looked like two pieces of material, sewn at the shoulders and seams.
I don't think I ever saw any that looked like the dresses  on this pair of Diva's, nor do I imagine they would ever be seen out wearing something home made.






In case you wonder the original starting layer was made into a Birthday card for a friend, who I know will have a smile when she saw  these two walking a dog.   Like I used to,  she wears boots and  comfortable clothes to walk her dog.

Thank you for calling in today, your visit is always appreciated.

  3. What a beautiful card and I laughed as well a bit about the two Ladies - I would not be able to walk my two mini horses in high heels but such a mini dog fits this Ladies perfectly ...lol!
    Happy TIOT Yvonne!

  4. What a brilliant card Yvonne! My Mum made me loads of shift dresses in the 60's (in fact I remember making some of my own dresses too with gathered waists to go over petticoats!) The ribbon on your card is a lovely touch! Hugs, Chrisx

  8. A great card Yvonne and I love the digital additions. I don't think the lady in your card walks her dog very far and it certainly won't get messy!

  9. Your "sewing" looks similar to my wonky stitches. I truly adored this, and it made me remember when I had big, big dogs that walked me, rather than the other way around (grin). I simply adore this TioT entry.

  16. Fab page and card Yvonne, love those runway girls. I wore shift dresses in the 60's&70's when I was very thin! Could run one up from a couple of yards of fabric in next to no time, I'd look like a sack of spuds in one now ๐Ÿ˜„

  18. Love the stitching theme, and these two fancy Ladies. I can't remember the shift dress, but then again, I don't wear a dress but maybe once a year :)
