Just Inklined to Blog Hop - All Stitched Up

The theme this month was chosen by Debbie and that is where the blog hop starts.

we also have a couple of guest designers this Month, Mina and Jeni so it would be lovely if you could pop along and leave them both a comment too.

My image this month for the Just Inklined to Blog Hop is A Little Church in the Snow and it can be purchased here.

I coloured it with Copic markers then added a good sprinkling of the white glittery stuff to set the scene, I did a bit of sewing (against my religion ha ha) in wavy lines adding drop beads along the way, I used the Martha Stewart Pine border punch to frame the image the mounted everything on a light blue card.

Tiny little Aurora Borealis drop beads along the hand sewn stitches.

Next up is Mina who is joining us as a guest this Month and I just know she will have something wonderful to show you.
