Sailboat


This is a new stamp I have in the store from Inkadinkado called Sailboat .

I stamped it on watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink, then colored with Tombow markers and a blender pen. It's so easy to color. For those of you who don't like to color large images, this would be a good stamp for you. It's quick and easy to color!

I'm not sure who makes the paper since I cut off and sewed that part to the card before writing it down. My bad!

The sewing was done with my Janome Sew Mini. As much as I love this little machine, the only problem I'm having with it is sewing straight. It doesn't have the guide lines like my big machine, so I'm still trying to figure out how to keep a straight line. Any suggestions from those of you who have this machine? I'm all ears!

So....tomorrow is Friday! TGIF! Have a good one....and thanks for stopping by!

What about using colored tape to make guide lines where you want them. Measure where you want them, stick it down or draw line with ruler and a Sharpie marker. Then line up your paper and sew keeping paper against tape edge or marker line.

I commented yesterday...but I guess it didn't go through.

Great Card...I LOVE it!!!

About the stitching guide...I have a magnet stitching guide that sticks to the plate of my machine...you can obviously put it wherever you want and it works great! I guess they still make them!!?
