Would you like to win a $10 Gift Certificate to Simon Says Stamp and the entire line of Sew Many Cards new releases…then we have a special challenge this week for you during our blog hop…You’ll find all the details on the last stop of our hop!

Okay now that all that is out of the way.. on to my card! I’ve been reorganizing my area and of course I make a card that I want to sew on! So instead of pulling out the sewing machine (as I had just put it away that day), I pulled out the good ole thread and needle and did the sewing by hand. I used Pink Paislee paper and the piece under the donkey is from a sticker book by Pink Paislee. The main card uses DoubleMates cardstock.

I used prismacolor pencils and blended it with odorless mineral spirits. I printed the image out again and colored just the head. Cut it out and attached it to the body using Helmar Liquid Scrap Dot so that there is some 3D look to it. Sponged in blue ink for the sky and green ink for the grass. Shadow was added with a gray copic marker.

I used Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch for my layout and also for Fab ‘n’ Funky Challenge of using a digi image.
