The Friday Mashup #23: Back to School / Stitching

So, here's the "Mashup!" challenge:

1. Create a project with "Stitching or Faux Stitching".

2. Or Create a project for "Back To School or a Teacher Gift".

3. Or "Mash it Up!" and create a "Back To School Project with Stitching"!

Sounds like an interesting challenge! The DT have some pretty cool samples posted, you can check them out here! I decided to mashup with a back to school stitched project.

This clear stamp is from Michaels , but I have no idea what it's called!!! I stamped the books three times in Pool Party, Cherry Cobbler and Lucky Limeade and then I cut out a color section and paper pieced it together for a multicolor look. I used the masking technique for the ABC's in the corner ( hmmm... maybe I could've done that for the books!!!) The paper is from an old Imaginisce collection, whivh I matted on Cherry Cobbler cardstock and then stitched it together. I also stitched the cardbase ( non-SU kraft ) and inked the edges with Whisper White craft ink.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Mashup!!!
Have a great one!!
