Stitched With Love 46

Mona Pendleton | Monday, August 23, 2010 @ 11:47 PM | ,

Hi There! Hope you all had a great weekend :) I was away with my family, boating on Lake Powell & visiting the Grand Canyon. I'll share those pics another day but today, I would like to share this card I made for this week's Friday Challenge 032: Color over at the JustRite Stampers Blog.Sharon is challenging all of us stampers to ink up ANY of our JustRite stamps & create a project referring to this gorgeous Fall color palette for inspiration.
These colors make me think of the crisp Autumn air & cold nights that are soon to come even though the temps are still in the 100's here in Phoenix! With those chilly thoughts in mind, I pulled out & I inked up the quilted flower image from the Stitched with Love Borders & Centers set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamped on cs, colored using various Copic Markers then cut it out. Snipping a lil' bit past each curve so I could curl the tips giving it a lil' dimension & rubbing some distressing ink around the perimeter. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of fabric then stitched it on to the card. Wouldn't that make a beautiful quilt to snuggle up under?

Here are the Copic Markers I used: E57 Light Walnut, YR61 Yellowish Skin Pink, YG95 Pale Olive, YR09 Chinese Orange, G99 Olive, E47 Dark Brown, E08 Brown

That's all I have to share today. Thanks so much for looking & have a great day!

Mona, this is beautiful! What a great idea. I have several small cross-stitch patterns that I had thought about incorporating in my cards - still will. You beat me to it ;)

I'm kickin' back in Oklahoma today as my car's engine light came on 11 miles from my exit yesterday. Thankfully the car was drivable. I am praying it's minor but never-the-less, I'll be enjoying some Oklahoma hospitality one more day before I continue on to Washington, D.C.

This is just a stunning and unique card. Love it.
