This week on the Sweet Stampin’ Challenge we are running the theme Stitching.
We’re sponsored by the super sweet Sew Sweet who are offering one lucky person picked at random a £10 voucher for the shop which stocks a gorgeous array of wool, felt & haberdashery items.
We also have our monthly sponsor Joanna Sheen, who are giving one lucky winner a £10 voucher.
Next week is my baby brother’s 22 birthday and of coarse I have to make him a nice card.
Last week i bought the This and That: Charming from Echo Park and the paper with the fans just got my thinking of summer. I also love this collection because it works perfectly for masculine cards.
The image is a Happy Hoppers called Bunny Cruise. This is the first time I use it and I have to admit that I had a real blast coloring the bunny. On the other side i did two failed attempts on the bath-ring, but that was more my copics fault then the image. I had a hard time finding a color-combination that would match this papers. The image is a bit more yellow, especially on the green, due to the fact that the photo was taking during sunset. The image is as usual colored with copics and the clouds are Tumbled Glass.
The corner decoration at the top right corner is one of the corner-decorations in the Vintage set from provocraft. But the part you see is only the most inner part, the rest i cut away. The ribbon is tied with a nellieknot, and I think that really gives something extra on the inside of the card, i never decorate that side anyway. The stitching is made with some embroidery-thread, and i spaced the holes with the Tim Holtz ruler.
The inside is just continuing at the same theme, and the stitching.
