Creativations 2018 Tim Holtz Blog Hop and Give-Away

Hi Everyone, welcome to my stop on the Creativations 2018 Tim Holtz Blog Hop and Give-Away, I hope you're having fun and have enjoyed all the amazing inspirational samples so far from Idea-ology and Sizzix.
Now it's the turn of Stampers Anonymous and I'm sharing a card made with the Inventor 3 Stamp Set, perfect, if like me, you love anything sewing related...

I trimmed a piece of Idea-ology Denim Textile Surfaces to be slightly smaller than the A6 card blank, peeled off the backing and attached to a piece of white cardstock.  I then trimmed a piece of Distress Watercolor card to be slightly smaller, stamped randomly with the Lined stamp from the Cosmopolitan and Lined stamp set with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink and fixed to the Denim panel. I tore a section of Tissue Wrap and fixed it in place with dots of adhesive where I intended putting the embellishments and stitched around the edges of the panel.
I placed the Dress Form stamp in the Stamp Platform, inked with Black Soot Archival ink and watercoloured with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide using the Ranger Detailer Brush. I applied Ranger Opague Texture Paste through the Stitched Layering Stencil, sprinkled with Ranger Silver Embossing Powder, set aside to let the Texture Paste dry (it is important to let the paste dry before applying heat) and then heat set.
I cut a strip of Eclectic Elements Fabric, used a running stitch to create random pleats, fixed to the bottom of the panel using Ranger Wonder Tape, decorated with a piece of Idea-ology Lace Trimmings and buttons from my stash threaded with Eclectic Elements thread and then fixed the Idea-ology Ruler Pieces in place with Ranger Multi Medium Matte.
I stamped the scissors image on to Idea-ology Silver Metallic Kraftstock twice with Black Soot Archival, cut out and layered with 3D foam to create dimension. I rubbed Black Soot Distress Crayon over the scissors to create a vintage look and wiped it back gently with a soft cloth.
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by

You've inspired me to make something similar for my craft room. Thanks for the walk-through of how you made the piece. I don't have all of the items you had so my 'similar' piece probably won't be very similar at all but I'll think of your inspiration just the same.
