This week's challenge was "Stitching". You had to use stitching on your project, real or pretend! I have made an A5 card which I covered with Funky Meets Shabby Chic paper. I then matted a pink paper from the same range which had been torn around the edges and inked with a pale pink inkpad. I stamped around the "seam" of the pink paper with HOTP stamp using Blazing Red Staz-on. Then I took some green paper, (again Funky meets Shabby Chic),tore and inked around the edges and doodled a straight stitch around it with a Sakura pen. The image is another of my beautiful Sarah Kay ones from Shaz at Funky Fairy. I have watercoloured it using co-ordinating pencils. I inked around the white card with the pale pink ink pad and then mounted it at an angle on foam pads. Finally I popped some Primas on the side and squeezed a blob (note technical term)of some pink Liquid Pearls into the centre of each. I haven't put a greeting on yet as I haven't decided who to give this to.
