A stitch in time.....................

Hello there!!

Well it's Tuesday and that must mean it is Digi Tuesday and that means whoooooo hooooooo it's Digi Choosday! This weeks challenge is 'Stitching' and I was a sneaky little crafter this week; despite the fact that Nikky Hall gives the design team literally hundreds of images to play with; I often wander through Digiworld Downloadables and I spied the lovely Alyce Sewing image.

I used a 8x8 card, and the backing papers which are from the 'Tatty Easter' paper bundle which are FREE on digiworld downloadables.

'Alyce' is coloured with my Graph'It Markers and the colours I used are as follows:

Skin:  4120, 4155, 3120, 4135, 4145
Hair:  3110, 3250, 3270
Bow & Top: 4135, 5140, 5210
Tablecloth: 1110, 1180, 2105 Graph'It White Shaker Pen
Shirt: 7105, 7109, 7110
Sewing Machine: 9100, 9101, 9103, 9501
Cat: 9500, 9501, 9503
Table legs: 3245, 3250, 3255
Chair: 1210, 1230, 1270

I cut Alyce out with a Tattered Lace die which I then edged with two different Distress Ink pads to give a muted tone.

I added some flowers to the side because I cannot help myself!!

Finally, I ran marker 5210 round the gingham paper for the faux stitching effect.

There you have it, this weeks card for the challenge of 'Stitching'. Don't forget to hop on over to the main Digi Choosday Challenge Blog  and see the rest of the inspiration from the design team.

That's me for today, see you soon!
