At last.... first post. It's a wonderful creative world out there and having followed blogs and been inspired by some very talented people I decided to dip my toe in the water and join in with some of the challenges. There was only one way I could really do this and that's to start blogging...I mean I only joined blogger in 2008!
I'm not a techy but I did manage to set up a pinterest account a few months back and spurred on by that I have arrived here and on the last minute (as usual) I am entering below in the Sunday Stamper Challenge
The theme is a stitch in time. I've updated a set of cardboard drawers where I keep my sewing threads. The brief was to include some stitching faux or real. I had planned to stitch around the outside......but you can't do that when you've glued all the paper on can you?....(silly me) so faux it is.

I used some paper/card from my stash that I have had for ages ( think it's called 'Robins Nest') but they were all different shades of brown, so to tone them in I stencilled with different shades of fresco paints. 

Some grunge paste through the stencils.

And some stamping with Tim Holtz Stampers Annonymous and a stitch stamp that I can't remember who made.

Finished with a little treasure gold...well a bit more than intended and some matt medium to seal.

I really hope this loads, fingers crossed.
