WHIFF OF JOY WINTER CHARLOTTE WITH CAT


A few postings from me this morning. My first card for today is for Whiff of Joy Challenge No. 2 = "Stitching". I have chosen Whiff of Joy stamp "Winter Charlotte with Cat". I have coloured her in with Art-Kure WC Brushes, and for a little added texture, I have glittered some of Charlotte's clothes. The image has then been cut out using my round nesty, and also a layer of lilac card has been cut using my scalloped round nesty. The backing papers have been printed from Glenda Waterworth's Artylicious "Seasons Greetings" CD. There are four papers altogether, the first paper has been used as a main background, the remaining three papers I have cut into small squares, and have then placed them back together as a "Patchwork" effect. All these squares have then been "Stitched" together on my sewing machine. To make it easier to stitch, I stuck each square down on another piece of paper before stitching with my machine. The card has been finished off with a sentiment from Funky Fairy's "Xmas Rounds" Download, with a lilac bow on the top, and finally a flower.
Thanks for taking the time and dropping into my blog, and hope you come back soon. Happy Crafting X
