I went with Faux Stitching, only because I'd finished my card - taken the piccies and everything - and then realised I'd forgotten to add (of all things) the stitching!!
So it was out with the Fineliner and dash away! I know this sounds, well, dumb, but this is the first time I've thought to use a ruler - and boy, does it make it neater lol!
I've used the sketch from Papertake Weekly, albeit flipped, they've got a "Sketchie Free For All" challenge where you can use any of their previous sketches; I went with #68, it's perfect for all the layers I like to add, Addicted to Stamps has a Lots of Layers challenge; suits me!
The image I've used is "Penny With Presents", available here. I've coloured with Copics, adding Stickles to the present and Liquid Pearls to Penny's headband. Colour Me Copic has Pretty in Pink as their challenge theme, Penny's not in pink, but her pressies are (coloured with RV's) so I'm entering there.
The background paper is from my stash, the designer papers are digital from the Party Time Mega pack by Shery K Designs, nice and bright, too bright? Nah! Divas by Design has Favourite Colour Combo as their challenge, I love all colour - especially with brown matting :-) so I'm entering there. The image mat was cut with Nestabilities Lacey Squares, Paper Crafting Journey has Punches and/or Die Cuts for their challenge so I'm in.
The flowers are from my stash, they were white and some of the centre pieces of the petals hadn't come out properly... so I coloured the flowers pink and made the little pieces into leaves by Copic-ing them too :-)
The sentiment is another freebie from the generous Paulette at Create with TLC. Totally Papercrafts has Inspired by a Song; I'm thinking Happy Birthday To You and entering there.
I finished the inside to match the outside, as usual. The Paper Shelter, Simon Says Challenge, Crafty Calendar, Cute Card Thursday, 2 Sisters and Pile It On all have Anything Goes challenges running so I'm entering them too.
Well that's it for today's card, pop over to Di's Digis Challenge Blog and check out the rest of the team's work - they all remembered their stitching!
It's a nice easy challenge (if you remember to stitch!) so I hope you enter - there's a prize from Crafty Sentiments, and if you use one of Di's lovely images you go into the draw to win two more of Di's Digis.
That's it, I'm done, just watching the cricket before bed; it finishes at about 1.30 am here, so I don't generally last to the end of play but we're doing okay this test so the news shouldn't be too devastating when we get up in the morning, lol
I'll be back in a few days with a wedding card I made for my son Chris to give to some friends who got married this morning - it was a "Breakfast at Tiffany's" theme, so the ceremony was at 8.30am!! Mind you it probably meant they had their choice of venue, (my older son) Matt and Elaine had to book nearly two years out from his wedding to get the reception venue they wanted... and that was for a FRIDAY! Until next time, Happy Crafting - Donna
