Postcard - Sew

Created for the Sunday Postcard Challenge where the theme this week is Buttons & Bows.  The postcard started out as a piece of Taffeta Smooth white cardstock (from Craft Creations).  The background was created using Victorian Velvet Distress ink (wrinkle free distress technique), and Frayed Burlap (sponged around the edges.  I stamped over this with a buttons background by Traci Bunkers in Victorian Velvet, and then another button stamp in frayed burlap.  The button card and bobbin stamps are from Stamp Galaxy (very generously gifted to me by Kay).   I stamped these in the same distress inks, and cut them out.  I added tiny buttons to the button card, which were first painted with Distress Paint to match everything else, and added some DMC embroidery Floss to the bobbin card.  Finally, I added my bow at the top of the button card using cream seam binding (Wild Orchid Crafts), which was sponged with Victorian Velvet, stamped the "Sew" definition in StazOn Timber brown, and adhered the sewing machine charm.
