It's time for another Crazy 4 Challenges challenge! We're starting a new month and Vicki is our hostess. She's challenging us to use sewing on our cards. Well, I'm good with that, LOL. Any kind of sewing will do--machine sewing, faux sewing, or hand sewing--any kind will work, we're easy ;-)
I'm using the SCS sketch for this week--#248--for my layout and stamps from a My Favorite Things set called Spring Sprouts. Only I tried to make them look like Fall Flowers, LOL! I thought they'd go really well with this new Cosmo Cricket paper, Earth Love. I inked up the flowers with first Memento Rich Cocoa and then Memento London Fog to get a color that's very close to the color in the paper. Then I colored them with Copic markers. Card stock is SU! Soft Suede and Certainly Celery and PTI Melon Berry. I also did some distressing with my distressing tool and ink. Card construction is pretty obvious, I'm thinking. The button is from the MFT Chocolate Kiss collection and is tied on with PTI twine.
NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of the Crazy4Challenges team!
