Ching Chou Kuik´s Black Haired Lady

Morning folks, I hope you all had a great weekend ... they sure fly by real quick.
Monday morning again and the start of a new week and fabulous theme at Sweet Pea Stampers. This time round we challenge you to use

Real or Faux Stitching, or perhaps both.


I have inked up Black Haired Lady and coloured her with my copics mounting her onto pearlescent card which I stitched using a Crealies template and punched with a Martha Stewart.


Papers are BG Bittersweet, ribbons, flowers and brads from stash.
Challenges:
Alphabet - F is for Flowers
Basic Grey - Turquoise/Brown/Cream
Crafty Creations - It´s a Stitch Up
Crazy 4 Challenges - Paper Flowers
