Sew Something

This week over at the less is more blog Mandi and Chrissie have chosen sewing as the theme.
All the challenge details can be found HERE

I stamped my image, which I'm sorry to say I don't know where it's from, in denim ink from adirondak. I then pierced around the inside of the heart and used a white gel pen to create a faux stitched effect. I then pierced around the edge of the square and added black pen to create the stitches.
I mounted the panel to my card blank with foam pads, stamped the sentiment in black versafine, and added the buttons.
Apologies for the poor photo taking, it was getting late so the light wasn't very good, the heart and buttons are actually blue, not black how they look on the first photo - if the sun comes out again tomorrow I'll try to re-take it I think!

I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend, the sun has been shining here for a change!!

Love Claire
