All Stitched Up

Here’s my tag for Tag Tuesday using “All Stitched Up” as the challenge prompt.  FUN-tastic Challenge!  
I used a zig-zag stitch to stitch the areas between patterned papers of my tag to give it the look of seams.  The sewing machine stamp (with button sewn on top) was used to further support the challenge as well as the sentiment and the choice of patterned papers. Fun!

To make the tag I used the "Sew Sew Sew" Itty Bitty stamp and sentiment by Unity Stamp Company. The sewing machine was mounted to the tag using 3D Zots. Before mounting it, I sewed a button to the top of the sewing machine. I altered the sentiment to make it different sizes for interest and wet embossed it by using a Ranger Perfect Medium pen and applying and melting clear embossing powder.  The tag base is a Tim Holtz Tag & Bookplates Die by Sizzix (cut using my Silhouette Portrait); Black Soot Distress Ink was applied to edges of tag and tag topper.  Altered Fashion prints were used for the background of the tag, filled the scallop border, and filled the stamp image.  Fall Word Strips were used toward the bottom of the tag, “soul” and the rectangle including the heart.  Both of these digital kits are by Nancie Rowe Janitz.  The tag topper and scalloped border is by Silhouette America. The button is from Autumn Leaves.  Glossy Accents by Ranger was applied to the heart in the sentiment. Heavy duty jute from hardware store was applied to the tag by tying a bow. Thanks MUCH for letting me play again this week.
