Fabric transfer

After moping and whinging around all day, complaining about the weather, lack of mojo etc etc when it was time to start making dinner I decided to have a play with TAP transfer paper I got from Crafty Individuals at Port Sunlight, well dinner was very late as I was just so blown away by the transfer process, so so simple and fantastic results. This C.I girl was scanned and printed onto the TAP and the transferred onto a bit of old white sheeting, I can't get over the details of it. Now please don't look too closely at the stitching ! my sewing machine has to live upstairs and I didn't want to go to the bother of getting it down so thought I would use a little craft one that was in the cupboard down here, well it would have been so much quicker to get the proper one out andmaybe I could have sewed some straight lines too. The background is stamped with versamark and coloured with Pan Pastels,then overstamped with sepia versafine and stencilled with that bit of mesh again and some sequin waste.  I'm putting this on a few challenges

Pan Pastels - Something vintage
Tando Creative Challenge - Fabric
Crafters Cafe Challenge - Pearls and swirls
CCEE Stampers - Card with a vintage feel
