This week at Phindy's Place Challenge Blog, the challenge was to use sewing on your card. It could be either real stitching or faux. No question here for me as my real is far superior to my faux. I've been sewing most of my life, so love the concept of combining stitching with my card making.
I used the sketch from Papertake Weekly Challenge #45 for my starting point., then it was on for a search for papers. I loved these papers from October Afternoon's Spring release. I thought the stitched look to the paper, especially the Cathedral Quilt pattern would be perfect with sewing. I used my machine to straight stitch around the bottom layer, but decided I wanted to do something a bit different on the top layer. I used my wing needle to punch bigger holes and then sewed a chain stitch on either side. I didn't pick an image until I had decided on paper and sketch, and of course with this quilting theme going, what better than Not So Hot. Everyone knows that when you're not feeling well, bundling up in a cozy quilt is just the ticket. I colored him up with my Copics and tried to use all the colors that were in the "quilts". You can find him at Phindy's store along with some other images, you really don't want to do without. I added some flowers and the sentiment that's from Rainbow Echo. I'll be hanging on to this card for when I need to send out a Get Well card to someone.
Thanks for stopping by, and I love hearing from you.
