The Pixie Cottage Challenge #40- Sketch and Stitching
This is my creation for The Pixie Cottage Challenge #40. The sketch was provided by our guest designer Hazel, and our theme for this week is stitching. (Wich is something I learned to do from Jenn) I find adding stitching to a card adds a subtle touch that simply finishes off a card nicely, without over-embellishing it.
This card was made using The Pixie Cottages "May I Have This Dance" stamp. I really like how elegant this image is, and it can be purchased from Michelle's Scrapbooking and More. I specifically chose this image because I needed a card for a friends wedding, and this image immediately popped into my mind. I loved paper piecing her dress by cutting it out and adding layers with pop up dots.
I can't wait to see what you do with this challenge. I am always up for learning new ways to use our themes. Thanks goes out to each of you who particpate. I really enjoy your pieces of art.
