Little Red Wagon #257 - In Stitches

Good morning!

It's Wednesday which means it must be time for another challenge over at......

It happens to be my turn for this weeks challenge, so I'm going with one of my trusty favourites.......Stitching!

Real or faux, doesn't matter as long as there is some form of thread resembling pattern on your creation!

I absolutely love the look of 'real' sewing on a card or layout, but unfortunately I'm usually too lazy to fetch my sewing machine from the basement, or just a little mentally challenged when it comes to achieving a beautifully straight line!

So unfortunately, for my sample you'll have to make do with a fine line marker and a (not so) steady hand!

Looking back now, I think my 'faux stitching' turned more into 'faux doodling' with my uneven zig-zags, but I'm sure you get the general idea.

This is also the first image I have coloured in at least nine months!

I kinda lost my mojo when my computer crashed back then, and I lost the whole of my digi collection.......a few hundred to say the least.  I hadn't got the heart or motivation to start collecting again so.......I just stopped!

Fortunately for me, the other night I was trawling back through old emails from 2012 and found some which still had attachments of some of my favourite Saturated Canary!

I finally forced myself to pick up a marker and get back on the bicycle so to speak.

After all.......I am now the proud owner of 24 digital images!!!!

Note to self: When you have not coloured anything for....oh.....say......nine months or more, maybe you should start with something you were at least familiar with before (Copics!) and not something you had never quite got to grips with in the first place! (Promarkers!!).

Just sayin'!

Oh well, it's a start.

Hopefully you will have some success with the sewing machine, needle and thread, or marker and whip up some fabulously stitched creations.

Just link up over on the Little Red Wagon blog and we'll be sure to stop by.

Don't forget also, to check out a little inspiration from the rest of the Girlfriends whilst you're there.

Have a great week,

You are way too hard on yourself. I love your stitching/doodling and your colouring is perfect. Thanks for a great challenge.


Lost all your digis! Yikes, I'd be inconsolable if that happened to me!

Lovely card! Your faux stitching looks amazing.


Your card is fabulous! I love that image and your coloring is gorgeous!
