I'm back again for another go at this week's "stitched" theme over at the Paper Players Challenge http://thepaperplayers.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/paper-players-135-leannes-theme.html
this time with a Mother's Day commission - the request was lilac and I immediately thought of a couple of new PTI stamps I have and this is the result.
I stamped the embroidered blooms in purple and lilac and fussy cut adding black liquid pearls to the centre. I stamped the leaves a few times in two shades of green and fussy cut again (wish I'd got the matching die now!) I stamped one of the ribbons from ribbons and bows in lilac onto a white panel and then arranged the fussy cut elements on top. I added my favourite Mother's Day sentiment (Crafts Meow Parents) in purple and finished with a few lilac gems and a matching lilac mat before mounting onto a 7 x5 white base card.
I was really pleased with the results on this one - the embroidered detail on the flowers is so pretty and the sender was pleased with this card - hope his Mum is too!
I'm also entering this into the Spring theme - birds, bees, plants over at Moving Along With The Times - http://movingalongwiththetimes.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/the-birds-and-bees.html
