Basic Grey Stitching Challenge
I have discovered a new challenge blog, I wanted to try: Basic Grey Challenges Blog. First, it has BG, which I love and then the prizes are from Simon Says Stamps, which I love and have ordered from before. The challenge this time is stitching. Also, it gave me an excuse to know off another file from a cartridge I cannot afford now, Lovely Floral:
HERE is the Cut file. You will need Home Decor and Mothers Day for this cut file.If you care for this enough to download, I would love your comments!
Below is a close up of the stitching. I wanted to make a zig zag that hit the peaks and valleys of my scalloped circle. To get this look, I hand poked my holes, and hand stitched the thread. I know, you are thinking I have too much time on my hands, but it relaxes me to stitch a small project.
I used a stamp set by Inkadinkadoo called Personalized Expressions, Thank You. The paper is Basic Grey Fusion, the white lace trim is from my cut file in a previous post and is a knock of a BG trim.
