Stitching has become all the rage and it does look rather splendid on paper projects. I have a sewing machine but have yet to get it out, so far all my stitching has been done by hand. This example is no exception, I thought about using the machine but then decided that I wanted something a little more funky.
My stitching dilemma was caused by the challenge set by the lovely Adele on Dottie's World today: "A Stitch in time". Adele wanted to see some stitching on our projects.
I had to use my absolute favourite download collection from Louise Brigden (available here) and my brand new Copic Sketch markers.
I experimented with the colouring here and not too sure if that contour shading works too well, but I enjoyed it IMMENSELY!
The card is meant to be for a teenager, the tape measure is marked on the '1' and '6', the intention there being to symbolise a 16th birthday.
I also used my Nestability dies plus a Cuttlebug embossing folder and Distress Inks. Pop over to Dottie's World and see the glorious examples from the other DT members :-)
