Mama Elephant & Virginia’s View Part Two

May 11, 2014 at 8:00 am 9 comments


Thanks for popping back! This morning I'm highlighting another chance to join in with Virginia’s View Challenge Blog
I’ve already shown one project on the theme of stitching here
and today is another project using a similar idea- this time to mimic something that would be a solid object. Rather than using it to add movement, it’s simply adding colour, texture and dimension to the card. Replacing part of a stamp or line with stitching is a very simple way to create a streamlined, clean and graphic element to your card.

You can see I’ve added colour with Copics, a ‘seat’ using the Hero Arts Woodgrain stamp and the Bunnies and sentiment are from Mama Elephant’s Hunny Bunny. There’s still time to enter Virginia’s challenge. I do hope you’ll join in. Don’t be put off by stitching- it’s only poking two holes and adding a straight line of thread- and if you can’t be bothered, draw it instead.
I can’t tell you what I’m off to now as I scheduled this last night when I can tell you that I was tired and sleepy and if this post makes sense, then it’s fairly miraculous.
Pop back after 7pm this evening. I’ve a surprise announcement about some guest designing!

Enjoy your day. It’s my no.3’s Birthday today. More cake and fun!
