Morning all, thanks for stopping by.
It’s Tuesday so it’s time for a new challenge over on the Digi Choosday challenge blog, this weeks theme is Stitching. Now I’m not a sewist so it had to be faux stitching on my project. I decided that I’d like to do a paper patchwork for my background, so selected a few patterned papers from the very elegant Eden Collection, available on CD-Rom here or as a Digital Download here. I also choose Eden Cherry Blossom pre-coloured image for the focal image for the card, also from the Eden Collection.
I started by using an X Cut hexagon die to cut the patterned papers, I glued the die cuts onto some card and then trimmed the card down to square off the background. I used fineliners pens in various colours to create the faux stitching on each hexagon patch, I also put faux stitching all around the edge of the background and finished by edging the backgrounder with Memento ink. I matted the patchwork background on to some cream card, then matted on Kraft card and finally adhered to the card base.
I cut out the Eden Cherry Blossom image, matting onto a piece of Kraft card and trimmed. I added a sentiment and embellished with some paper flowers, a die cut from Tattered Lace and flat back pearls.
I’d like to enter this in the following challenges
