Playing in Paradise Challenge #22 - Scrapbooker's Paradise
This was the Father's Day card I made for my father-in-law that depicts his favorite shirt - a thread bare, chambray denim shirt with a well worn polka dot hanky. I used some rough sandpaper on the shirt 'fabric' paying particular attention to the edges. I worked and worked at distressing the paper "hanky" to get a fabric look with frayed edges. It is hard to see in the photo but the edges of the hanky as well as the cajun cardstock have both been distressed. I also used some snaps from my sewing collection that were originally black but I sanded off most of the color to give them a worn look as well. I hauled out my machine and did the stitching in a denim blue color thread. What a blast this was!!!
Supplies: Black & Cajun Craze - Stampin Up; Blue "Denim" is Basil, Polka Dot paper - unknown
