Going freestyle

Morning all.  Hope this finds you well now that we are on the downward slope towards another super Bank Holiday weekend.  I may start a campaign to get one a month!

Anyhoo, I have been lucky with my entries for this challenge in the past, but am not sure that luck will hold out for this one.

I have loads of "stitched" effect dies now, so heaven knows why I decided to go freestyle

Image stamp is Sugar Nellie: Best Day Ever (minus the mouse)
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sentiment from Clearly Besotted - it's a straight line one so I did it half at a time
Papers are Dovecraft: Pretty In Pink
Tiny Woodware retro flower punch, and office hole punch
Custom sized card base

Note to self: use a ruler next time!

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Sarah said...

She is such a pretty little thing Squirrel and beautifully painted. You have to "keep it real" girl, using a ruler wouldn't have looked authentic, you should see my tacking with aneedle and thread...wonky doesn't come close!! xx

No, leave the ruler where it is...the freestyle stitching looks great and a little wonkiness adds to the charm...have you seen my stitching? Ok, I know everyone thinks it's pretty neat but there is always a little bit of randomness and wonkiness to it otherwise it wouldn't look so natural.

Ok, but enough of my stitching and back to your beautiful card, which is of course perfect for our challenge at In The Pink...always lovely to have you join us :-)

The image is super cute and beautifully coloured and the tiny punched flowers look gorgeous.
You know, I think the DP on the largest layer and the flowers even looks like a stitched effect!

Big hugs, Kat xx

I love these SN images and your stitching is great. The little + symbols on the backing paper also look like little cross stitches!
