You Are My Anchor

This week at the Ribbon Carousel we are challenging you to do a little stitching on your creations.  You guys know how much I LOVE my Janome Sew Mini Sewing Machine so this was a super fun challenge for me.  Don't have a sewing machine?  Then faux stitching it is!  :)   


For my card, I started with a Marshmallow cardstock base and accented with layers of Peanut Cluster cardstock.  I chose designer papers from Authentique (Glory) and then machine stitched all of the paper panels.  For my image, I've used My Favorite Things newest a'la Mode - You Anchor Me.  The little anchor is a die from MFT's coordinating Sea Charm Die-namics and is tied with some beautiful Graphite Vintage Seam Binding and accented with a bit of Cherry Divine Twine.  I distressed and frayed the edges to the seam binding for character and to matching the distressed look of the papers.

Copics Used:
Skin: E11, E00, E50, R02
Hair: E41, E42, E43, E44
Shirt: R39, R37, R35
Shorts: B99, B97, B95, B91
Anchor: C7, C5, C3, C1, C00


Hopefully my creation has inspired to you play along with us this week at the Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blog Remember, your creation can be anything you'd like, just be sure you use ribbon, bakers twine, lace, thread...(anything that comes on a spool) with a little stitching.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
