Good morning dear friends. I hope you all had a brilliant weekend. We had a lovely time, yesterday we went to the cinema to celebrate my son’s 15th birthday (his birthday is actually today) and we saw his choice of film – Johnny English reborn – which I have to say was quite funny, in a silly way of course. So I am going to embarrass him now – HAPPY 15th BIRTHDAY LIAM, WE LOVE YOU LOTS AND HOPE YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY x x
Onto the reason you are here today! It’s time for a new challenge over at stamp with fun challenge and this week we have a super easy theme for you of “stitching”, it can be real or faux, whatever you prefer. I have done some faux stitching with a fine liner pen. Here is my card:
This is the card I made for my eldest son to give to his brother. I used a Kenny K image called ‘teen idol’ and coloured him with a mix of promarkers and flex markers. The gorgeous papers are my mind’s eye from the ‘kraft funday happy days’ paper pad and the black cardstock is from the papermill shop. I’ve distressed all the edges and added minimal embellishments (two ribbons which are recycled from a top I bought recently and 3 mini buttons).
The rest of the design team have created amazing samples to inspire you as always, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. We really appreciate the lovely comments you leave for us.
