Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge

SSS Challenge this week was super cool "Some Stitching-Faux or Otherwise.... Here is what I came up with a little mixed media collage!

first step:
sandwich a piece of felt between two pieces of muslin, sewed together on the sewing machine
second step:
I used glimmer mist to color the blank canvas: frost, coffee shop, riptide, olive vine, cranberry zing.
third step:
cut out a heart shape
fourth step:
created another muslin sandwich, sewed (quilted) again
five step:
glued down old scrabble book pages and tissue tape down; added more distress inks (walnut ink)  and glimmer mist

                                                                          rolled roses
               I created these rolled roses in the same way glueing book pages down to a piece of muslin and then when dry cut out spirals and rolled them into roses added some color with glimmer mist, same with the leaves.
    for the finishing touches I stamped some swirls and words "listen to your" heart..... stamped with black archival black ink.

 I have to say Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog pushes me outside my comfort zone, love it won't you give it a try!!!!
