Zoe Challenge #5- "Stitching, real or faux"

Good morning Lovelies! Wow! Spring has sprung, how glorious at last, let's hope it hangs around a while!

So here we are another fortnight gone which means another challenge on http://rheddandrosies.blogspot.co.uk/ our new theme as you can see is "Stitching" faux or real!

Our very own Moira is sponsoring this challenge and offering this wonderful prize,


This is another theme I struggle with! I'm not really that happy with my sample, but I gave it a go!

The background I used my Gelli plate, I drew some stitches around the edges and stamped some swirls, the flowers were free with a mag and just so happened to have stitch edges, stroke of luck lol! I coloured the flowers with Pan Pastels, the butterfly is the small butterfly from Visible Image! I love these butterflies they are just gorgeous! You can buy it here, pop along and check out their stamps if your not familiar with them, they are a very fine quality, deeply etched for perfect images every time, and the customer service is second to none! Ahem! You can pay me later Helen and Mark lol! ;)
Thank you so much for visiting! Please pop along and visit our talented DT's samples and be inspired to join in!
