A {Sew Happy for You} Card...

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

Hello!  It's such a gloomy day here today. Full of rain, thunder and lightning and I have a sick little girl with a hacking cough.  I thought it'd be nice to share a happy card.

This card came about when I was practicing coloring with my new copic markers.  When I first got them I took a piece of white card stock and stamped a bunch of different images on it and went to town practicing some coloring techniques.  I loved how these spools of thread turned out that I cut them right off my practice paper and glued them as a trio to another piece of white paper. I filled in the top and bottom of each spool with a fine-tip black marker.  
The patterned paper that I selected not only coordinates with the spools of thread, but they look like styles of fabric you would find at your local fabric store.  I added some floss to tie in with the sewing theme.  

Thanks for taking a little time out of your day to visit!  See you soon!

PS.  I have a card featured on the Clear & Simple Stamps app for the iphone/ipad.  Check it out!
