Make us laugh or use real or faux stitching, or simply use an image with stitching in it .... however you interpret the challenge over at Smudgy Antics this week of "You Leave Me In Stitches".
The girls have done some amazing things on their projects again this week. Me, well you can make up your own mind.
I did follow the sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches - but this post is too late to enter their challenge. Oh well.
Smeared Ink - Stitchy Situation, doll #1. Using scraps from the scrap box that I'm trying to use up, papers from Basic Grey, I paper pieced the image. Just a tiny bit of extra grey promarker to give some shadow above the pot belly. The hair is couched embroidery thread. The image already has stitching as part of it.
More of the DP cut out and stitched onto a green circle before attaching to a layer of lilac vellum type paper that was stamped with a crackle effect stamp from Creative Expressions before more stitching onto light green card then onto a dark green card base.
The sentiment was computer generated by me. I couldn't make up my mind whether this little soul was poorly or love sick. I went with the poorly angle as he looks a bit green round the gills.
Your turn to stitch us up over at Smudgy Antics peeps.
A couple of challenges I'd like to enter this card into
Creative Stamp Friends - Paper piecing
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Layered
