This week our Design Element challenge was to add stitching (hand, machine, or faux) to our project, so I did a zigzag and straight stitch on the outside, and a little more straight stitching on the inside.
I colored the image with Copics and popped up pieces for dimension - Michu and an extra Michu head, the flower face, all the leaves and the little ladybug, which I colored to look like a snail because red didn't go with my color scheme. I also added Stardust glitter pen to the flower petals, leaves, and snail shell and a couple punched butterflies to fill the big white space.
Here's a close shot so you can see the dimension:
And here's the inside:
I found this stamp in Papertrey's Out On A Limb set and thought it was absolutely perfect with this image. It says, "To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world. Josephine Billings".
I got the idea for the three-pearl flower center from my fellow Pile It On DT member Alecia. Thanks Alecia - I really love the way it looks!!
