#54 Peace Man!

Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - stitching
Prize Sponsor - Digi Doodle Shops

The DT here at I ♥ Promarkers are all using images from Digi Doodle Shops for their stitching themed cards.  I have chosen to use one called 'Bell Bottoms' and I coloured her with Promarkers I hope it goes without saying! LOL.  For this peace loving hippy-chick I have given a patchwork background of papers from Cardmaking & Papercraft and used a couple of HOTP stamps for some faux stitches running along where the different panels meet. Around the very edge of my patchwork 'blanket' I got out the sewing machine to create a fancy edge border and then got the needle & thread out and hand sewed 2 large cross stitches through the image and onto the background. It was rather tough going through all the layers I have to admit but I don't like being defeated. LOL.

We hope you will join in with our challenge this week, & all you have to do is remember to use Promarkers and then some form of stitching - real or faux. Thanks for popping by my blog today.
