Hi, I must be running a temperature as this is the 3rd posting today! I've had a lovely crafting day today and I've seen the amazing Tim Holtz launching some of his new stuff. I was lucky enough to get hold of the Paula Pascual clear sentiment stamps so I can't wait for them to arrive now!
This card was made to the recipe over at I love Pro Markers. It is just their 3rd challenge so why not pop over and have a play too, there's also a 1st place gift of $15 from Simon Says Stamps shop so that's a lovely enticement!
I wanted to incorporate colouring with PM's with some paper piecing, I used an old Woodware stamp and used scraps from my offcuts bags for the red gingham shirt and the blue spotty tie. I coloured the blue background card that mounts both images and I coloured and shaded the red tie, the cuffs and the collar. I used poppy and berry, with denim & cornflower and cool grey 1.
The challenge asked for some stitching so I just HAD to drag my machine up again!! ha ha ha, like I don't love adding stitching anyway!!
I deliberately tried to keep some white space.
Thanks very much for all of your lovely comments, they make it all worthwhile.
