EWE LIGHT UP MY LIFE


My second Challenge for today was from Papertake Weekly - "A stitch in time". Here is my card...I have chosen one of my favourite stamps from Rachelle Anne Miller's Collection "Lily and Milo", and this one is called "Cuddle Up". Whenever I look at this stamp, I see the wool with a lot of texture, so I simply "Blob" (technical term) glue on each Wooley curl, and then just throw (another technical term) glitter over the top. This gives the sheep lots of Sparkle, and Texture at the same time! Also when looking at the sheep, automatically the colour combination of "Black and White" springs to mind. I have put some "Stitching" around the stamped image, and also found this lovely Black ribbon with white stitching in my craft stash, that also goes well! The sentiment was done on my computer, layered up, and put together with Black Brads.

Hope you like my card, and come back to see more! Happy Crafting X
