This weeks Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Challenge was to use hand stitching on your card. This was a challenge for me...well maybe challenge is not the right word...a dislike. lol I never sew, stitch, patch, or do anything like that.
I usually ask my mother in law to do that kinda stuff for me. It's usually my little girls stuff anyway, so when then come to Grandma and ask "Can you fix this?" really how could she say no. ;)
However for this challenge I did do it myself. It took a bit of practice on a scrap piece of paper to decide what I really wanted it to look like, and this was the deciding stitch. I actually asked my husband for ideas and he suggested a baseball stitch beings my card was masculin. So that's what I did.
Anyway for this challenge I used Raymond, thought with Father's Day coming up I'd be prepared. I coloured Raymond with my copics but added the grass using my Prisma pencil crayons. I still need some more practice but I like the softer look. The paper is some old stuff from Stampin Up and the sentiment is a rub on also from SU.
Now pop on over to the Kraftin Kimmie challenge blog to see more.
Have a great weekend!!
