I picked the color scheme for this challenge for this week's The Outlawz color challenge. I had never tried real sewing on a project and thought what better time than the present. My twist is to add sewing, either faux or real. I had done a lot of faux sewing so I opted for real this time. I made it harder than it needed to be because I wanted to use a decorative die cut. I used a paper piecing template from SU for this. I photocopied the template, then used temporary adhesive to adhere it to the tan cardstock and fussy cut it. I then pierced the holes and removed the photocopy from the cardstock. I used embroidery floss to stitch the holes. It took quite a while because the holes were so close together. But, I liked the effect of the tiny stitches. I die cut an oval with a Sizzix die to back the flower digi. I don't remember whose digi it is. I colored the digi with Copics. The textured paper is from a pack that I got some time ago. It is quite a bit thicker than regular cardstock, but it has great texture to it. The sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp and the bling is from my stash. I used a SU die to cut the piece for the sentiment. I popped the die cut with foam tape to give it even more dimension. I still need to pull the machine out and sew with it now that I have done some hand stitching.
