DCM - Pockets of fun

POCKET full of Fun



I'm entering this card in Lynne's pocket challenge...
"I’d like to see lots and lots of pockets. Pockets full of posies, Brass in Pocket (love the Pretenders).Pockets on clothes, Pockets from clothes, Library Pocket, Pockets of this and Pockets of that. Get the idea? Pockets and Pockets of Pockets."
Wasn't quite sure what to do for this, I automatically thought of a denim pocket so I went with it. I used Fiskars Linen brayer with black dye ink onto 2tone bluebell card stock. This gave me my fabric texture. I cut pocket shape, stamped stitching with white chalk ink, applied eyelets and attached a 'Levi' tab with s.w.a.l.k and this gave me the idea for the hand (which I got by drawing around my three year old hand).
I adhered a strip of pocket full of posies decorative paper to the top of card and used it also for tab. I then applied rub on sentiment. I inked around the edges of the hand which can slide in and out.
