Quixotic Paperie Challenge Blog Challenge No. 9

Gosh is it Wednesday again? Yep, and as it is Wednesday it is the Quixotic Paperie Challenge and this week we have a fabulous


from Judy – Thanks Judy!

So I’ve hinted that I’ve been doing a lot of sewing recently – hence why my blog has been a bit quiet! I will show what I’ve been doing soon – promise LOL! The sewing is spilling into the papercrafts for my last few makes and for my DT piece for this week.

I’ve stamped the fabulous Steampunk themed Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp Chester from Quixotic Paperie onto calico and coloured him with coloured pencils. The black trim is a re-purposed piece of trim from an old t-shirt.

I stamped the pocket watch onto a piece of paper then distressed it and I have left the sewing and edges all rough and ready!

Can you guess the papers? They are from the Basic Grey Sugar Rush stack!

Ink – Staz-on

Paper – Basic Grey Sugar Rush
