A stitch in time …

… well actually the less said about sewing the better as far as I’m concerned.I just can’t do it!But I do know some people that do so one of them will  receive this card.

This is my entry for the Cool Aqua and Cocoa colour Challenge at Passion for ProMarkers.

These are the pens Iused:

I’ve had this Sugar Nellie  image for ages but this is the first time it’s been used.I stamped it in Rich Cocoa Memento to tone in with the colour scheme then coloured it with the pens mainly sticking to the two challenge colours.Because I didn’t like the whiteness of the card I dabbed some Cool Aqua onto an acrylic block and picked up the colour with the Blender using the chisel end on both pens.The faux label,stamped with a sentiment from Hero Arts Anytime Messages has been treated in the same way.I did actually stitch the ‘label’ for real (badly) but it isn’t sewn on to the image .It just gives the impression that it is – I’m not that  clever!The papers are K & Co and I hand cut the scallops following the pattern on the paper on the brown strip.The cards used for mounting are Papermania Textured and Core’dinations So Mod.The Prima flowers have a button from my Bag- O -Buttons by Autumn Leaves with some thread tied and knotted before fraying the ends.I just love them so much as you get so many and there are some really unusual  and pretty ones.Well I don’t like use them too often – it’s quite a wrench to give them away.I’m sure the recipient will never know how privileged they are!!

TFL,
