Joan sent me the cutest little critter for my card--a Mousey Seamstress from Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps. I had so much fun coloring her up with my Copics. I added some black Enamel Accents to her eyes and nose and Glossy Accents to her shoes and needle. For the spool, I printed the image a second time, colored the spool, cut it out, wrapped it in pink and white twine, and glued it over the main image. I didn't have to use foam dots--the twine was thick enough to pop it up just fine. I paper pierced the perimeter of the image rectangle and used a green Sharpie marker to "sew" between the holes.
On the inside, I used border punches on red and brown cs and topped them off with a piece of the same dp I used on the front, then I sponged Tea Dye Distress Ink around the edges.
I'll also be entering this in the following challenges:
