From The Heart Stamps Sketch #75

As you'll probably know from my previous post, I'm one of two Guest Designers during August and September over on From The Heart Stamps! I was already a big fan of the digis so its a bit like Christmas - getting to play with my favourite toys!

The current challenge is a fab sketch and it has a twist - to use buttons. Normally, the sketch challenges last just a week but during the summer its a fortnight, so here I am with some extra inspiration - and here is the sketch:

I've used Sick Chick, colkoured using Promarkers and papers from Echo Park - Splash; the buttons are from my rather extensive collection. I treated myself to a We R Memory Keepers stitch tool from Amazon a few weeks ago - I'd bought one of the heads for £1 in Hobbycraft (partly becuase it was a bargain!) and needed the actual tool. I used the needle that came with it and in hindsight I should have used one of my own finer ones as it was a bit clunky.

Half pearls and embroidery thread from my stash - the sentiment comes with the digi - perfect! Good luck with the challenge - please make sure you only use FTHS but if you join in, you'll be emailed a code to use off your next purchase in the store and its worth $1 and you can combine them so you get a free stamp!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Crafting When We Can: Bright Colours
Hobbycuz: Buttons Galore
Pile It On: Stitching
A Little Bit Crafty: Sew what?
Live and Love Crafts: Stitching
