Guess who is the February Guest Designer for the
Tuesday Throwdown challenge blog?! Little ole me!! I have played in their challenges on and off since the beginning of their blog a little over a year ago....there are some really fun challenges each week and what an amazing Design Team too! What an honor to be a part of the team for a month!
This week's challenge is "Stitching"...either faux or real. Our sponsor this week, Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps has provided the team with some gorgeous digi-designer paper, "My Summer Garden", and digital stamps for our samples this week....I chose "I Heart You" for my sample.
The scalloped heart image was printed twice on white cardstock and twice on the gorgeous burgundy digi-paper. The hearts were cut out of the burgundy, the edges sponged with SU Early Espresso, and paper-pieced over the white scallops.....it was a lot of cutting, but I love how it turned out. Some freehand paper piercing and faux stitching with a Signo Gel Pen were added to each heart. The background designer paper is also from the "My Summer Garden" pack....sponging, paper piercing, and faux stitching was added here as well. To finish out the card, some May Arts Crocheted ribbon and satin ribbon tied with a Bow Easy were added, plus some mini roses and pearl flourishes from Zva Creative. The grand finale is "Pearl" Glimmer Mist, although it doesn't show well from this angle.
I have also used the following challenges in the making of this card:
