Wednesday DT challenge


The challenge this week was a sketch. How fun is this one? I had a blast playing with my toys! (I mean tools) I asked my hubby last night if he thought I would ever grow up and quit playing with toys and coloring. He seems to think I am a lost cause. Haa haa. The base is creamy caramel stamped with my polka dot bg (C.C.Designs) in really rust. My copic markers are my favorite play toy now! I used prima flowers and airbrushed them. The tiny buttons in the center of the flowers were covered with stardust stickles. The SU hodgepodge brad in the center of the big flower was colored with my copic markers. Sooooooo coool! The little tag is chipboard cut out with a small tag cuttlebug die. It is stamped with chocolate chip craft ink and embossed with clear ep. The stamp is from the new C.C. Designs sentiment set! I love that thing, there are so many sentiments. I made a scallop border behind it with my new cuttlebug border embossing folder. Super fun! I wanted the zig zag stitching to be with linen thread so I unthreaded my sewing machine and stitched around the SU dp. After it was stitched I hand stitched the zig zag with my linen thread. Easy peasy and all the holes were in the paper. Go over to the All That Scraps Blog to see what the other girls did. If you want to play along, we would love to have you!
