Orange Paperie & Co July Challenge

The lovely Kim Ewins has set the challenge over at Orange Paperie & Co for July. "Stitching, Stamping & Stencilling" is this month's theme. This is my DT inspo. I found this fantastic paper (FabScraps) on one of my many journeys through cyber word. Perfect for the photo I wanted to use. Also I dug out my embroidery threads for the stitching on this page. If you look closely I have used the chicken wire stencil and also added some extra stamping. Lots of layering and a bit of lovely Washi tape from Craft Queen and this is what I ended up with.

And some closies:

The lovely button is from Purple Pumpkin which I've been wanting to use for ages. I've also inked up the flowers to match the colour scheme.
Please pop over and have a go at the challenge this month, we'd love to see your work :) And a huge thankyou to the talented Rachael Funnell for being our Guest Designer this month! Check out Rachael's blog for some great inspo.
