Faux or real.....

stitching that is.....and thats the challenge this week over at Lil Lolita Boutique challenges!
yep its thursday again..can you believe it...my god these weeks just keep rolling along at such a pace dont they.  i think they need to slow down to let us catch up...

Anywho.....what was I here for...o yes.....Stitching!!!!
now I have gone the faux stitching route on my card as well....quite frankly its justtoo much effortto go out into the shed to find my sewing machine, then drag it inside, set it up, blah blah blah i'm sure you get the picture...so much easier to just punch some holes and drag out the white gel pen and presto....stitching lol
Here is my effort...


i have used the beautiful  Willow, isnt she gorgeous in her summer of love garb!
papers are Kaiser craft Lush 6x6 pad, as is the tag.
willow is coloured with copics.

Hair : E33, YR23, Y21
Skin: E11, 00, 000
Shirt and flowers : YR04, 02, 00
Pants: B45, 24, 23
Plus various other colours for flowers and spots
Shadow: C5, 3, 1, RV10

O and I forgot to say you can win these stunning flowers made by our very own JAckie

TFL and get stitching!!!

I love the fact that you always use a great variation of colours on your cards and manage to make them look sooo good. I'm with about dragging machine out too much effort! Hugs from bron
