Today's (or I should say Tuesday's) challenge was to create something with stitching! And not just stitching around the card. It had to be an image of some sort.
So I played with this for awhile. I thought I was going to be so cool and try to free hand something. Well that didn't work. So my WOSFF, Barb, said to stamp an image and then stitch it. Why didn't I think of that? So here is what I came up with.....
I used TAC's Curls and Swirls, stamped on the back and stitched on the front! I think my "stitching" days might be over now though, because I don't think I did a very good job. I think my sewing machine does a much better job!
I also added some bling with some colored gems and a little dot here and there with my Stardust Gelly Roll Pen! I love that thing!
One more note, the background paper is some of my favorite TAC retired paper. I am holding on to it like gold because I just don't want to use it up. (It's like buying a candle and not burning it right?) I love that paper SO much and it isn't available anymore. But I am happy to get it out and use it today!
Gonna go play with the kids! Hope you are having a great day!
