This is one of my favourite images from StretchNBubbles.... I've used it repeatedly ... thank goodness digi images don't wear out! I have noticed that in this wonderfully icy Aussie winter we're enduring, I've been using a lot of warm summery colours in my latest creations.... must be a subliminal message to myself to try and keep warm ... we've been forecast a winter heatwave of 17 degrees celcius today... that's SPRING weather ... mind you it's so overcast, I can't see a patch of blue sky!
I printed the image, twice, colouring the leaf on the base image, and the flower head on the other. I trimmed the flower head, and coloured the flower and leaf, adding glaze pen to the button centre, for dimension. I then set to all the stitching... the flower head, then the stem and leaf. The flower head was then fixed over the image, and I stitched a line frame around it. The image layer is fixed with mini brads on top of glitter embossed DCWV cardstock, and orange. I added two strips of ribbon, and the trimmed twill ribbon words. I then filled the space with strips of latte coloured pearls...
