A Stitch in time..............

Evening Everyone I finally found that challenge that I was looking for all weekend, quite by accident in the end, isn't that typical. Anyway now I've found it I guess I had better post my card before I forget where it is again lol,
This is another card that I have made using a sponged panel that has then been painted with bleach.
I have made it as another example for my class at Davina's on Wednesday evening,( stampcraftcards) but I would also like to enter it into the  Stamp and Create Challenge.
As you know I'm very new to this challenge stuff so I hope that I'm doing it OK.
The stamped panel at the centre of the card has been sponged with kaliedacolour ink (dye based) and then parts of the image have been painted with cheap thin household bleach. This takes out the colour although it doesn't always go right back to white it just depends on what colours you have sponged on to the image in the first place.
I've used one of my Nesties, my Cuttlebug Swiss dots folder and a border punch on various pieces of card and background paper from my stash.
I must be going through a purple period at the moment, isn't that something to do with being over 50??
I have edged each panel with faux stitching which is why I felt it suitable for the challenge.
The stamps are both by Hobby Art and I have completed the whole thing with faux card candy.
I hope you like it.
I'd better sign off now I'm getting tired.
Thanks for stopping by.
Love and hugs


  1. Kim, this is quite lovely and the bleaching of the card gives it an ethereal glow and really brings it to life.

    I am another purple lover and also over 50, you could have something there.

    Your buttons/brads? are they made with an I-Top? At least I think that is what it is called.

  2. Hi Lin, thanks for the lovely comment. The buttons/brads are actually made with a small circle punch, large ball tool and a soft mat. Don't know what an I-Top is lol.
    Punch out card or paper, use the ball tool and soft mat to emboss the reverse of the circle and mount onto the card using silicone glue.
    Hope this helps.
    Love Kimx

  3. So pleased you found it Kim and a great card to enter as well.

  4. Very nice card Kim. I like the stitching. I'm wondering if I have one of those white thin tipped pens. Probably - somewhere - never used. See you at Lavender Lane tomorrow. LOL x
