STITCHING NATURE
{BASIC GREY & ABC CHALLENGES}
As most of you followers of Doing Life know by now, is that I am in love with nature. I love to be outdoors all the time and feel claustrophobic when I am indoors and don't have a window to look outside. This even applies when we are at a restaurant ... I always like to sit near a window ... just to be able to see the sky is more than sufficient for me. So this week's challenge at ABC is 'N for Nature' and at Basic Grey it is 'Stitching'.
All the flowers on this creation should suffice to meet nature's requirements and the Basic Grey cardstock has got stitching all over it. The three floral frames, the sentiment and the three doodles were stamped with brown dye ink.
Basic Grey Cardstock used:
Infuse Lace
Black Tie Gleam
Archaic Earth Worm
The plain cardstock are all from the ColorMates range
Please don't forget to visit these challenge blogs and have a look at the DT's beautiful creations.
