A First Attempt

Hi All, I hope you have all had a good week, I thought I would show you my first attempt at stitching with a machine. I kept seeing cards with stitching and wanted to try it. As you can see the image which is called Fairys play time is the perfect image for some sewing lol. Heather was kind enough to let me have ago on her machine and help me with the tention adjustments.I coloured the image with promarkers, the backing paper was free with simply cards and papercraft mag, flowers and bling from stash. The image is available from http://dragonslairdesigns.com/shop/

There is still time to enter our Easel challenge over at Stampin With The Dragon, you can make your card for any occasion but it must be an Easel card. Pop over to the blog for some fabulous inspiration.
Thank you for stopping by I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Oh my, Kevin, your stitching looks as if you have been doing this for ages. I stitch for a long time now but can't get this straight. Great idea to add stitching to your work. I love the way it looks, the image is fabulous too and love your embellies. Great work!
Hugs, Iulia
