I'm back again with a Whimsy challenge! This week, break out that needle & thread or sewing machine; we want to see sewing on your card! Remember that you can use any image you like in the challenge!
ETA: I didn't know ahead of time, but Denise is offering a really cute digi stamp to one random player this week - go check it out!
Today's card is a baby card. I really want to try some machine sewing on my cards, but my machine is still boxed and hard to get to at the moment. Maybe if I can get my hands on one of those mini machines - hmmmm.... =D
So, I did a little faux stitching around the edges of each layer, hand sewed the buttons to the card, and added a couple of little x's in the corners of two of the layers. The inside has a rub-on sentiment that says, "Welcome, Little One!"
This image actually has three little goslings in it, but I wanted a smaller focal panel, so one of the little goslings got the boot. It's been a while since I watercolored any images, so I decided to break out my watercolor pencils for this one. The sky has a very pale blue wash to soften the stark white.
