A Few Stitches

Hello!  It is time for a new challenge at Creative Knockouts.  Our challenge theme this week is In Stitches.  You must use stitching in some form on your project.


For my project, I used Tulips by The Paper Shelter.  They have such adorable images and you get a digital paper with each stamp.  The paper I used is the one that came with the stamp.  I printed it three times: one for the base, one for the green strip, and one for the doily.  I cut the doily out by hand because I couldn't get the Silhouette to do it for me!  I included the butterflies and bent them just a little.  I added clear Wink of Stella to them to add a little sparkle.  I cut the green strip from one copy of the paper so I could stitch it onto the base.  Layering the paper gives just a bit of dimension to the final piece.  I colored the image with Copics and used the Silhouette to cut her out.

The Paper Shelter is our sole sponsor this week.  You have a chance to win a $15 gift card, so fire up those sewing machines and get to work.  You can click the badge below to pop over to the shop to start your wish list.
