Saturated Canary Challenge



I was absolutely thrilled to discover I won last week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge's awesome prize of 2 digis from Saturated Canary!! OMG I love these images!! I had a hard time choosing my prize but finally settled on the stunning Zorana and another I'll keep a secret until I show you her :). Of course that means I just had to enter the Saturated Canary challenge which is stitching. I dug around in my scraps drawer for some offcuts so that I could create a patchwork background inspired by Zorana's gorgeous dress!


Isn't she stunning!?!?! I just had to have her as one of my favourite things is to colour hair so how could I resist all that gorgeousness?!?! I have coloured her with copics and added some stitching details with a white gel pen and some stickles to the bells and her frilly underskirt. I have stitched around the image mat a couple of times for a distressed look.


I have created the stripey fabric rose myself and the brad is from Whiff of Joy. The hydrangea was a gift and I added a rose from Wild Orchid Crafts to the centre. The button I snipped off some old trousers my little girl has outgrown (which was also the source of the stripey fabric LOL). The leaves were punched with a punch I forgot I had and I added some strips of cheesecloth to complete the ragamuffin look.


I added some gorgeous seam binding from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and of course some bells from my Christmas stash to match the bells on Zorana's skirt!


Here's a close up of the stitching I did around my patchwork pieces.


I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
