INVENTORY CHALLENGE NO. 79, I'll sew you something...


Hello my friends, Happy Friday.
Christina, myself, and our talented team are happy to welcome you to our 79th Inventory Challenge, featuring SEWING. I knew on the spot what I wanted to try my hand at embroidery! I searched the web for a pattern and fell in love with a dream catcher, it was the idea that started my card. I used  Native American Tilda from the Bon voyage collection, and found the MME Fiddlesticks papers were perfect for my project.    Tilda was stamped on xpress blending card, colored with copics, and shadowed with crayons.  I used DMC gold and silver embroidery thread, as well as black, for my dream catcher.

Bon Vendredi,
Nous voici rendus à la fin d'avril, déjà... nous vous accueillons pour notre 79e Inventory Challenge, qui a pour thème: la couture. Je savais tout de suite que je voulais tenter l'expérience de la broderie sur papier. Me restait à trouver un "thème" à ma carte.  Je demeure tout près des rapides de Lachine, juste de l'autre côté du fleuve se trouve la réserve de Kanawake... c'est ce qui m'a inspiré ma carte le thème amérindien. J'adore les capteurs de rêves, j'en ai partout dans la maison.  Native American tilda, de la collection bon voyage, était parfaite pour mon projet, ainsi que les magnifiques papiers d'allure rustique, de MME, Fiddlesticks. Tilda est étampée sur x-press blending card, coloriée avec des copics, et les ombres faites aux crayons de bois.J,ai utilisé du fil DMC doré et argent, ainsi que noir pour broder mon capteur de rêve.




The dream catcher occupies most of the right panel of my card. but I have left an opening to insert a tag, which I forgot to include in the picture!
Le capteur de rêve occupe la presque totalité du paneau droit de ma carte, mais j'ai conservé une ouverture pour glisser une étiquette... que j'ai malheureusement oublié de photographier.



A close up of the dream catcher, I used distress ink in Walnut Stain and Black Soot around the borders and I stained the inside and around a little bit, cause the white of the card stock was shocking with the colour of the wood on the DP. the pattern I used comes from Stitching Cards.
Un gros du capteur de rêve. J,ai sali légèrement le carton derrière le capteur, et sur les bords, je trouvais que le contraste entre le style rustique et le blanc pur, était trop fort;  j'ai utilisé les encres distress Walnut Stain et Black soot.

I always knew in my heart that you love mysticism. It seems to go hand and hand with a creative person and artist. Your dream catcher is wonderful! Absolutely gorgeous. Your dream catcher alone would bake a beautiful card! Your sewing is lovely and you have picked the perfect papers and embellishments. I love Indian Princess Tilda. So beautifully done!!!!

Barb Hardeman a dit…

Dear Danni, I don't think I've ever seen such a fabulously creative card as this is. I even have this little image, but it never occurred to me to use a Dream Catcher with it. Your stitching is lovely and I love that it is set behind the opening of the card. Your coloring is gorgeous, as always, but the details on this card just make it fabulous! Warm hugs (hope that helps) Barb <><
