Do You Stack Up? Challenge #27

Are you up for another Do You Stack Up? challenge?  Where were you last week??

We didn't have a whole lotta entries for our chipboard challenge.  Maybe you will like to do some real or faux stitching.  Hope so!  We missed you!!!

Let's discuss the prizes up for grabs:
Mami Doodles is giving the winner four digital images!

Robyn's Fetish is awarding the winner her choice of either 5 digital stamps or 4 digital stamps & 1 paper pack!
**************************************
And now for your inspiration I will show you my card for the challenge.

I chose this cute image by Mami Doodles called 'Lil Luke goes Fishing'.  He's a cutey! He looks like he doesn't quite know what to do with the fish he caught.

I had just gotten a pack of the Paper Studio's cards so I wanted to use one of those.  To go with the card base I found papers from October Afternoon's Detours collection.  And I did real stitching to adhere them.  First time I have tried out this particular fancy stitch - I like it!

I colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils and OMS and inked the edge of the oval with Ranger Distress inks.  Believe it or not, that is a dark brown gross grain ribbon - not black!

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
Digital Tuesday - spellbound
Tuesday Throwdown - fun in the sun
Pollycraft Monday - the great outdoors
Stampin Sisters in Christ - what works for you (ribbon)
Sweet Stampin - cute & cuddly
 2 Sisters - summer time fun
Stamps R Us - through the garden gate
Crafts & Me - summertime
Fab 'n' Funky - bakers dozen (fish is food)
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
Crafty Creations - boyz-to-men
Simon Says Stamp and Show - stitching
Catch the Bug - CAS
Party Time Tuesdays - blue skies & sunny days
The Crafty Pad - lots of texture
Sugar Creek Hollow - paper piercing (does sewing count?)

Please pop on over to the DYSU blog for more and better inspiration.  We have some really talented gals on the DT!  They put my work to shame!
