In my thoughts- Anki's Sketch ~1

My friend Anki decided to have a go at sketches, and being one of my favourites on my Blogroll, I decided to give it a go! :)
And here, I present you... my first real stitched card! :) Machine stitched... not hand stitched this time! :)
The stitches in the main image are faux, but the DP and the panel are done with the machine. It is a different card from ones I usually do, and I still didn't decide if I like it as much as the others or not... but this is what I came with!! ;)

For this card I decided to use a differnet technique (I never did it before at least!)
I cut two large leaves which were meant for decoupage, and I corrugated them before I stuck them to the card. After I placed both, I punched a large and some small flowers, and did the same. I think it added to the texture and different feel it gave to the flower.

After that, I added some bling to the flowers with a glitter pen. I also doodled a bit with glitter on the door.
Obviously Edwin's wings and star on his clothes are also embellished with glitter glue.

I used :green and purple cardstock
K-Ology DP
Magnolia House and Edwin images
Green silk ribbon
Purple flower and brad from stash
Small punched flowers and mini brads
Shake-it decoupage sheets for leaves
Sewing machine
Corrugating paper machine (for leaves and flowers)
Black staz-on ink pad
In my thoughts~ Studio G stamp for sentiment
Silver glitter glue

Hope you are having a happy and crafting weekend.
God bless you all :)
