How's that for a title? That's the color challenge over at SCS today, which I don't usually get to play. But I am making Mother's Day cards for my sale basket, so I thought I would take the opportunity to play with these retiring colors! I am also using Mercy's sketch shown here:
I flipped the sketch on its side; used some various Basic Grey papers and tried to emulate my stampin' hero, Pam, with her beautiful stitching. Let's just say I need some practice (don't look TOO closely!):
I did have some fun with this cute ribbon treatment and button (I am on a corduroy button kick, obviously!):
It is interesting to me that my stitching mishaps occur on the same corner of my panels.....and here's a typical thing that happens when I am trying to do something in a hurry! I had a cute little spool of brown thread, just the right color. I load my bobbin, start my stitching and I am ALMOST finished and ping! the spool is EMPTY. So I had to take some thread from the bobbin and rewind it on the spool and use a different brown thread for the bobbin. Oh well! I do like the look that stitching gives, so I will keep practicing! Thanks for visiting again today and be sure to come back tomorrow for the Color Throwdown!
