My Favorite Things and CASE Study #16

I have a card for two challenges to share tonight.  It's for the My Favorite Things Stitch It Up challenge, and also for CASE Study #16.  I had grand plans for the stitching for this card - I've got lots of card bases with hand stitched swirls all over them - I just couldn't make it work.  *sigh*  So I settled for faux stitching.  :-)


Okay, so it's a tiny amount of stitching!  I quite like it though. 

Another feature I wanted to incorporate was to use my Papertrey Ink Moroccan Motifs Impression Plate - it's quite similar in design to the background stamp used in the CASE Study muse card by Heather Pulvirenti.  You might be able to see it a little better in the next shot - the effect is simliar to a letterpress.


I paper pieced the girls clothes, but the rest of the image is watercoloured.  I added shadowing on her clothes using Prismacolour pencils.


That's it for me for tonight!  I'd love to know what you think.  :-)
