On the other hand you could do what I've done and combine the two. I seem to be in a sewing mood at the moment and decided to make a cover for a little address book I bought in a charity shop. I've used my machine, some stamping, some embellishments and some ink just to grunge it up a little!
We're really having a great time at Anything But A Card looking at all your wonderful creations so why not give this challenge a try if you haven't entered yet or please do join in again if you're one of our 'regulars'. Please do go over to the blog and see what the other DT members have made this week too - I'm sure you'll be in for a treat!
Here's my DT piece for this challenge:
|The front view of the cover which was made from some vintage linen I've had for a very long time, some white cotton fabric and some twine. Some watch parts and wooden beads were used to finish the look.|
|The back view of the cover complete with inky finish to provide an aged look.|
|Nylon thread was used to hand sew real watch parts to various areas of the design. A combination of straight stitch and zig-zag stitch was used to attach the stamped pieces.|
|I really like jute twine and it's natural appearance matches really well with the linen fabric.|
