Now honestly, I can't sew. I have a nice Singer sewing machine that I bought because I wanted to learn to sew. I'm a very "all or nothing" type of person...so instead of just trying something small - I went out and bought the machine, a bunch of patterns, material, and set out to be a seamstress! The first thing I decided to make was a teddy bear for my granddaughter. When it was done - it looked like a giant mouse. Since then my sewing machine has not been used...that granddaughter just turned 9 years old this month and I made the bear for her when she was still a baby I think. Wow, how time flies. I've often thought I would try sewing on cards...but never have. I really need to do that. But since I didn't want to try on a challenge card....I decided to do faux stitching. And honestly, I've learned that I not only can't sew...but I can't "faux sew" either. LOL!!
The image I used is "Candy Hearts Jar". What a great image for Valentine's Day!!! I always loved eating those conversation hearts when I was a kid....and who am I kidding - I still love them!! Even just last year I remember sitting on the couch with my husband and eating those.....yeah, we are just a couple kids.
The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers, cut using a Spellbinders die and then layered it with the next size up. I did the faux stitching with a marker.
Please join us at Pattie's Creations Design Challenge....and show me how good stitching should really look - LOL!!!
