Top Tip Tuesday Stitches Challenge

Hello and welcome here! Where is this year going?? I can't believe it's almost March, at least we have an extra day this month to hold March off, lol:) On to the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge for the next 2 weeks...it's a Sewing Challenge, real or faux, and Janette has an awesome comparison Tutorial on sewing. Be sure to check out this weeks blog for Tips from each of the DT!

Challenge - Stitches (real or faux)
Tutorial - Sewing
Tips from each DT member!

Card Size: 5.5" x 5.5"
(shocked I know, I made a card other than 4.25" x 5.5", lol!)

Here is my creation for the sewing challenge. Be sure to click on the picture to check out the stitches, it's difficult to see because I used white thread. I stitched around each square, around the large square, and across the ribbon border.

A big HUGE thank-you goes out to Saturated Canary for giving me this gorgeous girl to colour, she's called Nevaeh. It gave me a chance to practice colouring folds.

Saturated Canary - 2 Digi images

The Crafty Pad - 2 digi images

I added Stickles to her skirt, the hearts in the top corner and to the rose on the bow. I added some shimmer to the tulle part of her skirt and her top with a Spica pen...but it's so fine you can't see it on the photo.

Purple is one of my favourite colours to work with, but Copic doesn't have a wide range of purples to work with so I had to improvise a little bit with the lightest purple to get the look of pleats...talk about challenging myself, lol. I see from the photo that I could have extended the shadow area a bit more, but I'm still happy with how it turned out especially since I haven't yet mastered folds/pleats.

You are my hero. I really couldn't believe that her dress had been colored. I kept thinking it was paper pieced, but knew that couldn't be. What a gift you have.
