Let's see some stitching @ Totally PaperCrafts

 
Good Morning
 
What lovely weather are we having at the moment here in the UK.
I hope where ever you are the weather is also being kind.
 
Today there is a new challenge starting over at Totally PaperCrafts.
 
This week Suzette is hosting the challenge and she has chosen a great theme:
 
'Stitching on a Card'


 
I must say it was a real challenge for me as I've never used my sewing machine in my paper crafting projects before. I have faux stitched before but this time I thought I'd go with the real thing.
 
I used an image from this week's sponsor Crafty Sentiments 'Fancy Dress'
Crafty Sentiments
 
I have coloured her in with Copics & Chalks
 
 
I then had a play with my Frantage for the first time that I brought a few weeks ago when doing a bit of retail therapy!!!
 
After stitching the paper onto the mats I distressed the edges with 'tea dye' distress ink.
 
The little fence was cut out using a MB die.
 
So come on get stitching I want to see what you create!
 
Hop on over to the main challenge blog for more great inspiration.
