…but I haven’t got a stitch to wear.
Of course this would make more sense if you can imagine Morrissey warbling along!Not that this song has much to do with this card BUT it kind of wormed it’s way into my brain when I first saw this image and has stayed firmly there.
This week at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges we’re looking for Stitching on your cards/projects.One lucky winner will get a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop.For some beautiful inspiration please take a look at the DT and GDT’s work.
For my card I’ve used the gorgeous Vintage Corset & Pantaloons from Digi Doodle Shop.I used Copic Sketch Markers to colour her hair and clothing.Her skin has been coloured with ProMarkers.The reason being that I was so lucky to win the Copics and didn’t have the colours for skintones.I love these double sided papers so much (even more so for finding them at the bargain price of £3.99!) and wanted to show off both sides so I decided to make a frame to go around her.I added a panel of embossed card behind her in the same colour that the patterned paper is matted onto to create the illusion that it is all one piece. I used my Sew Easy Tool to make the holes for the hand stitching.The buttons were threaded seperately then adehered so that they look like they’re stitched on.Supplies : Image : Vintage Corset & Pantaloons from Digi Doodle Shop Mediums : Copic Sketch Markers ; E81,YR30,BG70,E23,E87,RV55,RV63.
