Good morning peeps.  I hope you're all well out there in blogland.  Today sees my first creation as a new member of the design team for THE PAPER SHELTER.  I wasn't supposed to officially start until 9th October, but all us newbies were told we could join in now if we wanted to...so I did, lol.  I made a tag using the image called Cute Dressmaker.

  This image was perfect as this weeks theme (#130)  is to use stitching on your project.  It can be real or faux, but stitching's the thing.  You've a chance of a very generous prize too.

I coloured the image using a mixture of Tria's, Promarkers and Copics. The close up shot is to show that I added some real thread to her needle. The leaf die cuts are Cheery Lynn, Memory Box corner and everything else was from my stash.  The sentiment is computer generated and I stitched my layers of paper on my machine.  The papers are from Kaisercraft 'Secret Admirer'.

Entering into:
LEJ DESIGNS #72 - Lots of layers
BEARLY MINE #105 - Anything goes..
PARTY TIME TUESDAYS #139 - Anything goes.
ARTISTIC INSPIRATIONS #60 - Anything goes/Bright colours.
DIGI MAKEOVER (Paper Makeup) #107 - Anything goes.
