This week we have a bit of a double whammy, chosen by one of our fabulous Guest Dt's at Passion for Promarkers, Tracy. We have a beautiful colour combination of Tulip Yellow and Baby Pink PLUS Tracy has asked that we use stitching on our creations, it can be faux, hand or machine stitching. So I thought I'd get the old sewing machine dusted off and give that a bash, as well as using hand drawn faux-stitching around the image itself.
This week our sponsor is
and they have very generously offered this gorgeous mini-book for our winner.
Just think of the fabulous things you could do with that
Now before I show you my card I just want to explain something.... in real life the machine stitching is actually all straight, but for some reason the photo I took makes it look like I've been at vino while using the sewing machine. And that couldn't possibly be true ;)
Image: Sitting Pretty from Sugar Nellie, coloured with promarkers: Baby Pink & Rose Pink for her top, dress and shoes, Tulip Yellow and Gold for her top and ribbons, Lavender, Orchid & Purple for her hair.
I also used Tulip Yellow and Orchid to colour the Petaloo embossed daisies.
core'dinations card for the image mat, paper mat and punched branches, the greeting is Stampin' Up. The papers are Papermania colossal pastel which I have had for years.
I machine zigzag stitched the paper to the mat, and hand drew the faux stitching around the image with a sakura stardust pen.
