There are three positions up for grabs for the term of November through December, open to crafters worldwide!
What you need to do is either make a card for the current challenge or upload an old project you've made for one of the challenges after june 15:th.
I was hesitating between a couple of cards. "Feeling peachy", a little love and this one. I finally decided on this one since I think it's an innovative way to use a square sketch. And it was my first try on stitching too. I'm also proud of the colouring and the style of the card. And even if I have developed since I made the card I still think it's one of my better ones.
This one was challenge 15 - using stitching. But to be honest I missed that it was supposed to be a gatefold card, so I don't know if I can apply with this one. If I can't because it doesn't qualify for the challenge then I'm applying with my "Feeling peachy" card. It was the last challenge - number 22 and we needed to use brown, orange and green in our card.
I used the stitching on the back part of the card. I zig-zaged around the dotty paper and used a straight seam on the left part of the brown CB embossed cardstock. I also zig-zaged together the textpart with the brown embossed part. I used a white thread which I then distressed and coloured red with inkpads. I also used my distresspad (vintage photo from Tim Holtz) on the raised parts of the embossed cardstock. I think it makes the details stand out even more.
I used my nesties for the circles and promarkers for colouring. I used:
ruby, cinnamon, cocoa, saffron, ivory and ice grey1. The text is goldembossed.
I'm very happy with the flower cluster. I did the gold text embossing on the big red brad all by myself :) I forgot to add some leaves around there. I've bought a bunch of qk leaf dies and think it will look great with them. But for now, this is what it looks like :)
