Sassy Crafts DT Call - Round Two

I got through to the second round of the Sassy Cafts DT call. How cool is that? So the next challenge is to make a project without using any ready-made embellishments of any sort. So, for example, you can not use ribbon unless it is to turn into an embellishment. Mmm - Interesting!

I think I went a little mad and decided to do a little embroidery. So the sentiment is stitched onto card and the edges distressed then covered with crackle accents glue. The flowers where cut from the papers, edges distressed and then the centre is an embroidery knot. Just had to stitch a swirl in chain stitch and a buttonhole - a desire to put a buttonhole on a card had just overtaken me :) The two mini-buttons are also cut from the papers, edges distressed and covered again with crackle accents.



Materials:
Papers - K&Co. Classic K Bailey, McKenna and Life's Journey
Inks - Distress inks Walnut Stain; Tea Dye
Other - Embroidery thread; Needle; Pin; Inssentials Crackle Accents; White hammered card; silicon glue; Scissors; Paper trimmer; Cut-N-Dry Foam
