Sew Lovely

I wanted share a card I started Friday and finally finished up! I had fun with it…

images removed for submitting 🙂

I used my red twine (I would LOVE some more colors to play with but alas lol) and had tons of fun making my flat “spool” of thread look dimensional. I used my Silhouette to cut out the shape then copics and a white pen for the shading and highlights. I even colored on the twine itself a bit to make it look even more round 🙂 Not to bad of an illusion I think. I used papers from October Afternoon and Cosmo Cricket. Rubons are AC and some I rock jewels. TFL! I hope everyone is having a fun weekend!

    Oh Kristy, I love this. Great use of the twine…Were is everyone getting the green and red from? I keep seeing it on people's work, but have no idea where to get it from. Hugs, Lisa G

    I can't believe that this is not a real spool cut in half….amazing card!

    Well isn't this just the cutest thing ever?! 🙂

  • judean says:

    yeah, I thought it was a real spool too, I was trying to figure out how you cut it in half, and wondering about what sort of envelope you'd use! Great job with the trompe l'oeil coloring, and your card is super cute!
