Altered Spool Pincushion ~ Scraps of Darkness

Good Evening Scrappy Friends! I have a quick share for you tonight - a ribbon spool I altered using goodies from the February A Touch of Grey Kit from Scraps of Darkness. I created a pincushion top for the spool from some foam and cheesecloth and used elements from the February Kit to dress it up.
I used a cardboard ribbon spool and covered it with the gorgeous Fabscraps papers included in the Coordinating Paper Add-On. I added some black ribbon/lace from the kit and Embellishment Add-on and some rhinestone trim from last month's kit. I added some gorgeous Petaloo flowers and, as a final touch, gave everything a spritz with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Mist in Bodacious Blush.
The finished result? An elegant pincushion to replace the "tomato" (you know what I'm talking about) that has been sitting on my craft table for years.

Thanks for stopping by!
