DT Post - Phindy's Place Friday Challenge #15 - Stitched Up
This week at Phindy's Place Challenge the theme is Stitching, we'd like to see stitching, real or faux, on your project. I was sewing before I ever made a card, so I love cards with stitching on. There are some AMAZING cards from the DT, do check them out, they are just gorgeous!
I used Spring Breeze, for my card, such a beautiful image, Mum looks a little frazzled yet still happy! I based my colourscheme on some gorgeous new DP from Fancy Pants that I got at Stamp Attic, my local shop, this week and I chose to paper piece the washing from the DP, which reminds me of vintage fabrics and quilts. Image is coloured with Copics and the background is a mixture of Copic and Distress Inks.
The sketch I followed is from this week's Simon Says Challenge. There's lots of stitching on my card and where you've got stitching you really need buttons, so I've added a few on the sheer dotty ribbon that's tucked under the image. I've also been playing with a new gadget - a die cutter for roses from Little Claire, so I added some pink flowers on top of a lace flower. Sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.
This card is for the following challenges:
Simon Says Challenge - sketch
Crazy4Challenges - buttons
Paper Sundaes - make your own flowers
