The challenge theme this week at Crafty Ribbons, chosen by me ! is stitching real or faux.
I decided to go with something other than a card,but using one of my favourite stamp ranges, House Mouse ,plus my favourite colour purple and favourite embellishment (goes without saying but I'll say it anyway) RIBBON !
This image is coloured with promarkers and inked around the edges.
I have used a bare basic box which I have covered with some hydrangea paper from HOTP.
The bobbins are die cuts from memory box, wrapped with embroidery thread, with some heart pins, a scissor charm from my stash and a selection of buttons (again from Crafty Ribbons). The flowers are from Prima and I have used Dew drops for the centres and scattered a few more dew drops around the image.
I will be filling this little box with sewing goodies (threads and things) as part of my Mum's Christmas present...she's a quilter...so maybe even a jelly roll !
I chose a purple theme (apart from it being my fav colour), as she has recently decorated her spare bedroom in purple and mint green ( because I gave her a fat quarter selection in those colours and she liked them so much she made a quilt for the bed in there and redecorated the room to match !) She also uses it as her sewing room.
