Gingersnap and Stampotique Ribbon Challenge


The Supply Challenge at Gingersnaps this week is to use Ribbon. This month I am the Guest Designer for Stampotique and they are also sponsoring Gingersnaps so I have used their stamps for the challenge which is never a hardship for me.

Here I have used Prom Queen and the phrase 
"What? Never seen a Dive before" 
but as it would not all fit in the frame I had to cut a paste and leave out the "What?"

I have been doing quite a lot of sewing at the moment and have some items going into a traveling exhibition for 6 months as from the end of January, so I decided to add stitch to this image. I have used a variety of threads from ordinary sewing thread which gives a lovely fine line much like a fine drawing line, machine embroidery thread which gives off a sheen, hand embroidery thread as well as beads, embellishments and ribbon. 

Prom Queen seems to be a girl full of attitude and I can just imagine her saying those words. Shame "What?" did not fit in. Of course I have again covered the frame with embossed tomato puree tubes. I dread the day they may start to put tomato puree into plastic tubes. Do you remember that toothpaste used to always be in metal tubes like tomato puree?
