It's a Stitch Up!


It's time for another challenge at Crafty Creations - and this time it's set by meeeee!! I just kept the challenge nice n simple this time....the challenge is "It's a Stitch Up"!! You simply need to add some stitching to your project...which can be sewn, drawn, rub-on's...it's your choice!
We were generously sponsored by Whimsy stamps and I chose this cutie. I thought this lil bear looked like it was flying, so I cut it out and adhered it to acetate so that it hovers!!

I used My Mind's Eye papers, an A Muse sentiment, a tiny Prima flower and a lil pearl in the centre. As I cut out the image I lost the swirly background that comes with it, so I used the same kind of "doodle" around my edges. Can you see my "stitches" (double click for a better view)? I used green embroidery thread to hand stitch 3 "kisses" to the left of my sentiment!!

I hope you get the chance to join us this week...there is a fabulous prize up for one lucky winner!! bx
