It's time for another challenge over at A Gem of a
Challenge, and this week (Challenge #88) the theme is "Spots or Stripes (or both)." This challenge will run from 8:00 AM July 13, to
6:00 PM July 19, and the prize for the
winner will be 2 individual digi images (NOT SETS) from Pink Gem Designs. So do head
on over and see what the rest of the lovely Design Team have created, then join
us, won't you? We'd love to see you!
My project today uses several items from the PGD store, starting with the striped and dotted digi papers. They have been discontinued but have been replaced with so many lovely new digi papers that you really owe it to yourself to check them out. The stamps are Flower Heart and one from the Vintage Occasions Sentiment set. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut both stamps out after printing.
I colored the heart with chalks and then added Perfect Pearls in their centers. I haven't used my Perfect Pearls in ages - for most of them this was the first time, and it turns out I was able to use every single color I have!
I used one of my handmade stick pins with a little added charm and put it through the hand dyed seam binding bow. I didn't have any pink striped baker's twine, so I colored that myself too.
Some stitching, vintage lace and a few more pearls finish things off.
Thank you so much for joining me today and I wish you a lovely Saturday doing the things YOU want to do, be it crafting, spending time with the family, or both! And don't forget to visit us at A Gem of a
Challenge and play along.
