New challenge posted!! - A Stitch in Time!


It is time for another challenge with LTSCB!!

This week's challenge is to use stitching on your project.  It can be any style of stitching... either faux,  real or BOTH.

For my project, I used a super cute image - Butterfly on a Toadstool from Angie's Digi Stamps.  
I couldn't decide which way to go with this image.... Whimsy, or Country.  I love that the stamp to me seems so whimsical, but I couldn't wrap my mind or imagination around whimsy and stitching in the same card.  How silly is that?  Funny how the creative mind puts things together.  I think part of my dilemma was that I wanted to do something different with the stitching.  Although I am pretty crafty, sewing is more my Mom's thing than mine. 

Here's what I came up with:

I coloured the image with PrismaColor Premiere pencils, blended with Gamsol.  The dots were coloured with a Sakura white gel pen.  I used my paper trimmer to cut 3/4" lines on each side to weave the ribbon through.

I cut the image in three pieces and stitched it back together.  I also added stitching with the ribbon for the side borders of the card.  Then I printed a second time and cut out that adorable butterfly to pop up.

The sentiment was computer generated.  Faux stitching around the sentiment with a white gel pen.
Papers used were: Cardstock from Stampin' Up! (Thanks Shona) and patterned paper from Recollections Habitat paper stack.
Thanks so much for looking!  I hope this inspires you to head over to our challenge and join in with your creation!!  See below for the details...
