Roses On Paper "Stitches" Challenge!


Hello Everyone,

I hope that you all have had a beautiful and relaxing weekend! Although my life seems to get busier by the minute, I always try to squeak in a little play time for myself:)

I made this card for Roses On Paper "stitches challenge"! I sewed on both of my card mats with my sewing machine and would have sewed around my image's mat, but was afraid that I would mess it up. *lol* I'm famous for messing up my cards as I come close to completing them....and this drives me nuts! *lol*


My image is from the Bells 'N Whistle summer collection and her name is Li' l Miss Poppy. Lil Miss Poppy is colored in with Copic Markers and her apron is embellished with tiny dabs of Liquid pearls and Stickles. I lightly airbrushed the blue sky color in the background.




The design paper is by DCWV and the card stocks are SU and Papertrey Ink. I embellished my card with MS lace punch, ribbon and orange gems. The sentiment is from The Greetings Farm.

Enjoy what is left of your day and thank you so much for stopping by! I really appreciate it!

hugs


Risa

Lol! I know what you mean about machine stitching, I'm sticking to hand stitching, it might be fiddly but there's far less margin for error!

What an adorable lil card! I love the orange-y colors, so girlie!
I know what you mean about messing up towards the end, lol! I always do that when I'm coloring my images, I start with the harder areas (hair, skin) and then get to confident towards the end with shoes and then I totally mess up or color out of line! LOL! So frustrating!
You did a beautiful job! Hope all is well :*)
