SSS Monday Challenge - It's a stitch up

The theme for the SSS Monday Challenge this week is to use Sewing or stitching in some form.

I love to use fabric and stitching with paper. The background is a piece of Hessian cut and frayed a little larger than a piece of calico cut with a TH tag die. If I had canvas available I would have used that. I stitched the two together then added some gesso. This stiffened the piece to a large degree. I stamped the background and the dress form using The Dressmaker stamp set from Oxford Impressions.

I added colour using Distress Inks and Markers. Hand and machine stitching also added.
