Drunken Stampers LAST Challenge :(

Drunken Stampers LAST Challenge :(

I’m so sad that this is the last challenge of this series on the Drunken Stampers’ blog!!!  I did the last one (combo of “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” with a rabbit) and it was some of the most fun I’ve had in a while. This week’s challenge is “Edward Scissorhands” (another awesome movie) and sewing. What a perfect combination!

Here’s the link to this week’s challenge:

And there’s my submission. I immediately thought “topiary” and happened to have some green felt that I just got from a magic “miscellaneous” bag from a local thrift store. I love those things. I used a stamp to make some grass at the bottom and then cut the felt into a scissors and a heart. I wanted to get the love-story element of “Edward Scissorhands”. I found this perfect quote from the movie on-line (I wish I could say that I remembered it, but I didn’t). I glued the felt first and then sewed it on. Then I machine stitched the sky with some shimmery metallic thread. I had a scrap of that fluffy stuff they put in a jewelry box for padding that I glued on with Mod Podge (it didn’t show up in the photo very well).  (I also have to remember that Mod Podge  makes ink from regular stamp pads run.)  Then I dabbed on some watercolors for the sky. Oh, yeah, and I sewed on a piece of the grass they put in take-out sushi boxes to keep the rolls apart. I LOVE that stuff!!!

I think I’m going to apply to be on the Drunken Stampers next team. It would be my first time every trying to do something like that, but you can’t win if you don’t play. Wish me luck!
