Papertake Weekly............


Hello a very good afternoon to you,

I have discovered that I am useless at sewing. This week's challenge in the Papertake Weekly is a stitch in time. I used the new Tim Holz ruler to make my holes onto the paper fantastic. Then I started sewing with some gold thread not so fantastic. Oh well faux stitching for me I think. I have mounted my little Magnolia onto sticky fix's and then onto a cuttlebug shape that I stamp with vintage photo and then glimmer misted. All my papers are MME.

Thanks so much for looking.

Sarah Kay......................


Hi,

Hope your Bank Holiday has been a good one.

Today I have made a card for the Sarah Kay Weekly Challenge sketch. This one was difficult to photograph because there was quite a bit of shimmery stuff going on, so it kept reflecting like crazy on the photo. Hope you get the general idea though.

Thanks for looking.

Hello,

Here is my card for A Spoon Full of Sugar challenge sketch by Debbie.

As we can now use any stamp for this challenge I have used Magnolia. I stamped her with versafine, then coloured using coloursoft pencils. I foam dotted her onto a cuttlebug shape which I distressed with willow and stamped with paper artsy stamps in brilliance pearlescent olive. This I also foam dotted. The colour is quite green but in the photo it looks yellow, sorry about that.


Hope that Thursday is being kind to you.
