Work it Wednesday and day 144

If you are here for The Character Cafe Blog Hop celebrating the release of new digi stamps, you have come to the right place. You can find the blog hop post HERE.

This week it’s my time to host the challenge over at The Character Cafe. It’s a stitching thingy and I hope you want to play. There are digi images of your choice and a Guest DT spot in the hat! You can find my “tutorial” and challenge HERE.

The card I made for the tutorial is also inspired by the day 144: You raise me up at the 365 cards blog (NOT 364 that I stated the other day… hehe, sorry… *blushing*) Btw, the day 142:Movie Monday has totally ruined my sleep. Had to go get that freaking book everybody is talking about, and geee, couldn't stop reading last night...

Kort 1

The card is using the Bertie & Friend image and I’ve used quite a few ways to ad dimension: Pop up dots, layering, piercing and glossy accent on the flower centers and on Bertie’s eyes.

Kort detalj 2 Well, I don’t know if the glossy accent is visible, but I really like the effect it gives in IRL.

And a little “extra” project I did with my assigned Blog Hop image. I LOVE that Sunflower, and I could use it on pretty much everything. I did a pin cushion out of a jar, the fabric I use has a sun flower pattern.
