Late Once More

Hi everyone, and happy Saturday

Well I'm pleased to say that my son's operation was successful, and he is now home again. He'll have his stitches out on 1st October, and hopefully start physiotherapy soon afterwards. But he's on the mend at least.

Now I've been a bit lax lately about posting. The reason is partly because I'm trying to get organised with my Stampin' Up! demonstratorship, if that's the right word. But today I'm posting a card from a challenge about three weeks ago. Friday sketchers posted a sketch on August 7th, and believe it or not, I did finish the challenge on time. I did not post it though, so I'm letting you all see it now instead.

There's quite a bit of stitching on this card, I really love that look at the moment. The papers are by My Minds Eye. I coloured the image with Copic markers, and the vine leaves were painted inside the card with H2o's so they shimmer, although you can't see it on the photo.

The white stitching is actually faux stitching made with a white gel pen, but the green stitching has been done with embroidery silk. In both cases you will need to prick the paper first.

The Prima flowers were distressed using chalk, and Distress Stickles, with buttons added to the centres. This card was made for display at Sir Stampalot where I am a member of their design team.

Hope you like it even though it's too late for the challenge.
