Sugar Nellie Golden Oldies


Hi all. Over at the Sugar Nellie blog they have been looking back to when the stamps were first introduced and have challenged us to use our 'Golden Oldies'. This is one of the very early ones from the Luca & Nellie set. I have stamped her on whisper white, coloured with Copics and then using Rach's tutorial for nestabilities outside the frame and it worked. Thanks Rach. Distressed edges with tattered rose DI. Background paper SU and plain pink paper is Making Memories. Stitched with sewing machine and added flowers from SU set coloured with SU inks. Scallop oval and sentiment both SU. Had fun looking at my older stamps. Thanks for the challenge.
As always really enjoy reading your comments. Thanks for visiting.

Super cute - and I love the stitching - I am not always successful when I do this - or lets say it like this - being used to making clothes when the kids where small I HATE it when the back of this paperstitching looks like a mess - I know I glue it on and nobody will know - but I KNOW and it keeps me from stitching as often as I would like to - if you have a remedy for this - please share =0). OOPS can see I am several comments behind - off to a party now - but will come back and look more. =0)
