It's Not All Black and White

Love You Sew Much

How cute is this sewing machine? I love the little heart shaped button on the bottom right. I'm a sucker for the details. Both this sewing machine and the matching sentiment are part of Lizzie Anne's monthly mix for October. So if you haven't signed up yet, it starts shipping tomorrow!

I colored with Copics and added a little distressing ink (Ranger's tea dye and Papertrey Ink's chamomile) to the circle's edge. The blue flower was originally white, but I colored it with a Copic marker to match.

All the details:
Stamps: A Harvest of Memories (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Paper: tangerine, brilliant blue (SU), cream (PTI), vintage findings (Making Memories)
Ink: black (Memento), brilliant blue (SU), chamomile (PTI), tea dye (Ranger)
Other: circle nestabilities, flower (Hero Arts), lace from Walmart, vintage findings button (MM), embossed curve punch (EK), paper piercer and template (SU), winter retreat dew drop, dimensionals, rustic jute button twine (PTI)
