My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

Fss - Wee Hummingbird and Petunia's




Good morning and welcome back for another Fred She Said Easel card post-it-note holder. I'm just loving making these. They make perfect little gifts.

The inspiration fro this card started with a Viva La Verve week 3 sketch.

Then I printed out the pre-colored Wee Hummingbird and Petunias twice, then mirrored the printing and printed out another set, slightly smaller three times again. I cut one out with the "out of the box" technique and a spellbinders oval die. Then fussy cut everything else out and mounted with foam tape for lots of dimension.

The Pearls and papers are all from Close to my Heart in Gypsy and Crystal Blue. I love these two colors together.

The Hand Stitching was all done with matching Embroidery Floss in my own unique design.

Everybody Art - Purple
Ladybug's Craft Ink - "P" - Pearls, Purple, Petunias
