BasicGrey Challenges #25 ~ Stitching

Happy Saturday... which means we have a new challenge over at Basic Grey Challenges...


Stitching... real or faux. I have added quite a bit of faux stitching along the edges, sewn the button in to place and even drawn a few stitches on the veins of the leaves under the felt flower. Still loving the 3d flower, it turns out so lovely in felt!I just haven't had the opportunity to use my TH bird cage die and thought I would try cutting some canvas, I've tinted it a little with distress inks.

Supplies: Patterned Paper: BasicGrey: Blush; Basic kraft; canvas cloth;
Stamps: Inkadinkadoo: paperwork greetings;
 Ink: Ranger ~ Distress inks: Frayed burlap;
Dies: Sizzix ~ Tim Holtz: Cage bird; flower 3d; leaves and branches; MS: border punch;
Other: Adhesive stones; American craft: velvet ricrac; WRMK: lace ribbon; felt; wooden button; tracer; hemp twine; TH: edge distresser; 3D foam;

Thanks so much for stopping by today, Maoleidigh and Dillon are feeling a lot better although I caught the tummy bug too, luckily it only lasted for the day thanks for your well wishes...

Dillon has gotten so scared and frightened of one of the toys in the movie that he was a nightmare to put to bed and even to settle the four or so times he came out of his room. God Bless him he burst into tears in the theatre, well he's asleep right now let hope his dreams are sound.
