Sew Special!


Hello Bloggers

As promised here's a little card made with a brand new digital illustration from  Pink Petticoat, called Material Girl.  The sewer in me loved this sweet image on sight and I couldn't resist printing up a copy to colour right away.  

The Kraft spot is called 'Definitely Dotty' by Jan Crowley for Jessica Sprague.....more digital goodness.....It's gorgeous, shame I've covered much of it up here.... but this too comes in 10 different colours....see the orange dot..... and all on my computer so I have it ready to print off whenever I need it!

I added a wrap of fine satin ribbon across the bottom of the card.  Machined the edge of the spot card which wraps around to the back of the card too.  The fine satin ribbon was perfect to make a ribbon flower set with a little pink button, tied with a linen thread bow.

My head is buzzing with a few ideas for this little image ...... The craft girls are in for a few little treats....

I'll be posting late on Thursday ....... but it's a bit special so hope you can drop by to check it out.....till then...................

What a sweet image and I love, love, love the Kraft paper!! I think your stitching that includes the back panel of the card is inspired!! Will keep that in mind when I finally get my own sewing machine out of storage and set up!! xx

Oh that is 'sew' gorgeous .... I too am thinking of things you could do with this image, would look sensational popped up on foam tape with a bit of real 'thread' showing through.
