Crafting When We Can Challenges 88 - Stitching real or faux

This fortnight over at CWWCC we have a new sponsor.  The wonderful 
Lizzy Love from
Oddball Art Co
The prize is 3 images from the store

Theme:  Stitching real or faux

The image I was given to colour is Big Eyes Kendall Collector of Hearts.  As soon as I saw her I knew I wanted to go red.  I orginally designed and cut a filligee heart to use as my background but I couldn't make it fit with the bats at the side so I decided to go for a sketch (sketch Saturday see below) and I really like how it worked out.  I coloured Kendall and the gems with my Spectrum Noir pens in corals and dark reds.  I think I made the skin a little dark but I like how it looks with the reds.  The faux stitching was made with a fine liner and ruler.  I don't usually use a ruler but I will from now on I like the straight lines, mine usually go wonky.   I really like how this card turned out and my even send it to someone.

Hop over to CWWCC and leave us your stitching projects.  Remember the stitching can be real or faux.

This is a super cute image and I love your colour choices. I like how you offset your focal image (I did that too) and your faux stitching adds real interest. It's a pleasure to see you join in the fun with our Sketch Saturday challenge. Hugs, Lesley
