House Mouse Monday Challenge CH#29 - A Sketch!

This week at HM&F, the DT Challenge was to follow this fabulous sketch:


We are being sponsored by KL Stampin’ and Scrappin‘. Their very own DT is also joining us with their very own House Mouse samples. KL Stampin’ and Scrappin‘ is giving away an awesome BasicGrey DP PaperPad called "TwoScoops" to one lucky winner. So come and play along by creating a HM&F card with this sketch and linking it to HM&F with Mr. Linky this week here: http://housemouse-challenge.blogspot.com/

Here is my take on this great sketch:

This adorable sewing image & sentiment came from 2RedBananas. (check out their store for more awesome products here: http://www.2redbananas.com/main.sc

These stamps are by Stampabilities, House Mouse Designs and the main stamp is called: "Sew What", #HMUR1065 - featuring Monica & Amanda. I dont know why, but i seem to be on a "blues" colors and shades lately! LOL. I used a new fun Designer Series Paper Pad from Making Memories that just so happened to be blue and have a few sheets in it that sort-of resembled stitches - so I went for it. I pierced between all the X's and doodled in some of my own FAUX stitches & added dots. The images are twice stamped, colored in with Marvy LePlume Markers, cut and layered for added dimension. The needle was colored in a silver glitter gel marker.

Thanks for looking!
America :)
