Tilda & Co

This week's challenge # 14 for the Tilda & Co Challenge blog is....

Stitch me up!

We would love to see your work involve Stitches!!!
Now this could be as
simple as Hand stitching , Machine Stitching or even Faux stitching.
Whatever
your stitching is try to make sure it is the main focus of the work to get the
stitching point across.


I decided to try out a flap card for this challenge. My sewing machine has broken so I couldn't do "proper" stitching. So instead I decided to do some faux stitching. Around the edges of the papers I pricked some holes 3mm apart and then joined them up with a marvy le plume pen to make it look like stitching. All the papers are by Scenic Route. I then coloured in the Magnolia images with prismas and zest it. I must just say thank you so much to Deb for sending me the images, :0). I used glossy accents on his pockets,buttons, root and toadstool. On the top and bottom of the flap I added some ribbon with stitching on. William and his toadstool were then stuck on with 3D pads. The happy birthday was made with a dymo machine.


Papers:- Scenic Route

Stamps:- Magnolia


If you go over and look at the Tilda & Co blog you'll see the other design team members work. And they are all so inspiring. Maybe you will get some ideas on how to do your interpretation of the challenge. It doesn't have to be a card it could be anything .... an ATC, layout, altered art, box anything that you can think of.
