You Old Sew and Sew!
Pat Frank has chosen our theme for this week, and her challenge is for us to create a card or project using stitching. You can either haul out your sewing machine, sew by hand, or do faux stitching with a marker or gel pen. I love to sew on cards, but this time I used a marker and faked it!
I used Mo's adorable little Romani (Gypsy) girl, "Georgia" for my card. I used colors and embellishments that I feel are reminiscent of their culture. It was by chance that I found ribbon in my stash that perfectly matched the way I had colored the trim on her vest! I wish that I had given her a darker skin tone for more authenticity. I may darken it before I put the card out for sale.
The little hand-painted pottery basket was made in Czechoslovakia.
Tools: Copics, Prismacolor pencil, Cuttlebug with Cheery Lynn border die, SU! thin black marker, Small note and heart punches, Nellie Snellen embossing leaf punch set
Papers: SU! Wild Wasabi and Real Red, Neenah smooth white, Cosmo Cricket DP
Embellishments: Ribbon, Assorted flowers
We'd love to see what you'll do with one of Mo's images and some stitching!
