Project of the Month Blog Hop - Stitches


We will hold this every third Thursday of the month , we aim to give you a little inspiration and hopefully a few Oooo's and Awe's along the way, The Dream Team is made up with some of the most talented ladies so be sure to give them all a visit.


The Hop is starting with me this month as I choose the theme of Stitches
Oh gosh! I had fun using this super image Darn it! by Mo Manning at Digital Pencil Too.

I coloured the image with Promarkers then even added the twine to the needle that he is using to sew his trousers.
The only down side to making this card was I no longer own a full length tape measure as I cut it down coloured it and stuck it onto my card ha ha.



Attention to detail...


At the top of the card I did a row of cross stitch and on the patterned paper I cut curvy then joined together with the twine and tied it into a knot at the front of the card.


I kept the bottom row of stitching simple



Be sure to pop over to Liza next as she is joining our hop as a guest designer this Month and I just know she will have something amazing to show you.


If you get lost along the way I have a full list of the Design Team on my side bar.

Amazing card Jak, I love the stitches theme and youve done wonders with your twine and poor little tape measure.
Maybe I should start a campaign for our little tape measures: no cruelty to tapes! lol
