Thank you for dropping by for our new monthly feature
where the Design Team and Special Guests share more ideas using the most recent release:

I love the new Cross-Stitch Rectangle and will undoubtedly be using it a lot:

I opted to sew my image with DMC Pearl Cotton #5 on MFT Kraft card.  As for the pansy, I found the chart on the internet.

Once completed I inked the edge of the die cut with a combination of Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap Distress ink.

A little tip:  I wanted to use Lemon Chiffon as a backing mount, but did not want to see the yellow through the unstitched holes.  So I cut a piece of kraft paper to fit the die and adhered it with tape, before adhering it to the background with foam tape, thus preventing the yellow from showing without adding additional bulk.  

Thanks for visiting the blog today, don't forget you can also keep up to date with my latest work on my FACEBOOK PAGE and INSTAGRAM

Until next time
Happy Colouring
