TCC Feature Friday 4


Good morning, hope all is well with you. First I must apologize for not having this up sooner, and for not posting anything all week. My back has been out, and it was everything I could do to get this project done. And I just couldn't sit here anymore. But I'm back and with my project. So, today is the 4th week of Feature Friday for TCC. It's of course also the fourth week for the Work it Wednesday over on TCC's blog. This week for WIW, Tesa gave us a tutorial on stitching. So, I figured I could do this, doesn't look that hard right!? Yeah, right!! As you can see mine looks nothing like hers, and of course it's not straight even though I used a ruler, but oh well I did try! I used the Flower Ziggy image, and made a notebook. I colored my image with copics, and tried something else new-outlining the image to make it look like it's shadowed. I like it, what do you think. I most definitely like it better than the stitching(lol). The CS is Bazzill, and the DP is MM. The ribbon is from Michael's. And the flowers are primas with jewels added in the middle. Oh, I did add stickles to her wings. So, now for the business. We've started having a guest DT on Friday's and this week is Verda, if you go to this blog you will be able to meet her and see her gorgeous card that she made. Of course please visit the other DT's blogs to see their fab creations this week. Also don't forget that if you participate in the WIW challenges, leave us a link on the blog and you could win a prize and be our next guest DT. If you upload to SCS please use TCCWIW4 in your upload so that we can find it. You have until Thursday the 28th at 12 pm EST to be eligible for the prize. If you don't have a blog you can email your submissions to tesabroman@yahoo.com. So have fun, I can't wait to see what you create.

That paper is fantastic Sara!
you did a great job with Ziggy- I think your stitching is perfect, the big craze is to do it in a random pattern, so see! you were just ahead of the pack!
hope your back feels better!

Sara, I'm sorry you have to deal with a bad back right now. I hurt my back twice last year and the first time had me down for a good week. I feel your pain Sistah and I hope you feel better soon!

Your card is great! My stitching is never straight and I don't even try to get it straight. Your stitching looks great!

You know what my BF and I use on our backs is Icy hot? in the stick that looks like deodorant? it still smells of menthol but, you don't have to get it on your hands and it works awesome! they have a roll on kind now too that works great! I know what you mean about the lack of posting. I've been trying all this week! LOL Take care my friend. :)

Take it easy on the back, I can totally understand, mine has been giving me fits for the past couple of weeks. Cute card, I love the orange flowers on the image and at the bottom. Isn't it great how that outlining really adds so much depth!
