Left Of Centre Challenge #121

Welcome back fellow bloggers, crafters and friends. 
I hope you have all been keeping warm and toasty in this awfully cold weather...

Today sees the start of a new weekly challenge over on the Left Of Centre Creative Challenges Blog. 

Challenge #121 is 'Faux or Real Stitching' and is sponsored by two amazing sponsors - 

Star Stampz

All Dressed Up

Here is what I have made - 

I used a gorgeous image from Star Stampz and coloured her with my Rangers Distress Markers and a thin koy water brush. 
The papers are both from 'Limited Edition' paper pads and mounted on pink card.
I used my silhouette to cut the topper, leaves, flowers and swirls.
A thin pink ink pen was used to add the faux stitching around the topper and the top paper layer. 
This was finished off with dark teal pearls which match the colour of the teapot in the image. 

I would like to enter my make into the following challenges - 

Crafting with an attitude - Anything Goes
Crafty Girl Creations - Anything Goes #16
Doodle Pantry - Anything Goes
Alphabet Challenge - A is for Anything Pink
ArtByMiran - Anything Goes

I hope this has inspired you to get your sewing kits out, or your pens to create some stitching/faux stitching in order to join in with our wonderful weekly challenge.
We always have wonderful images for the winner.
