I ♥ ProMarkers Challenge 12

Here we are again for another fab challenge over on I ♥ ProMarkers and this week it is a sketch and we are being sponsored by Die Cut Dreams.

I'm also putting this card in for the following challenges:

The main image is another wonderful image from Isabella's Sketchbook, and if you've read my earlier post today you'll understand why today is an exciting day for me. I have been lucky enough to join Isabella's DT so you will be seeing a few of Isabella's fantastic images in the future.

I've shaded the image with ProMarkers then cut it out with a circle Nestability. I've then used Distress Inks, Spun Sugar and Faded Lipstick around the edge. I removed the die then added the ink on this occasion. I was asked a quesion on a previous post how I keep the outer edge clear of ink. The answer is sponge the ink around the image while the Nestability die is still in place, then when you remove it you have a perfect border. The background paper is My Minds Eye and I've done a mix of faux and real stitching, the cross stitches are the real ones. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up and I've done another cross stitch below it and added some Distress inks. The buttons are from my stash and I've used some embroidery thread through the centre.

I'm running late tonight as I called in to see my Mum on the way home and after we'd put the world to rights and then cooked tea.......well you know what it's like !

Thanks for looking
