Bloggers Challenge- Sketch

This week for the Bloggers Challenge, Lisa challenged us with a Sketch :
  I used a new stamp from Rogue Redhead for my card:
  I did some paper piecing and the gloves are 'leveled up' which is a technique I learned from the Technique Junkies.  I was feeling grungy, so I distressed the bottom DSP by Basic Grey and sewed around the edge.  I also distressed the red layer- SU DSP and sewed that with a Zig Zag stitch.  I some technical difficulties with my middle layer, and I decided to add the brown striped DSP . I added red stickles to the heart on the glove and on the top Rt corner.
  The circle under the glove uses the new Ranger Distress Ink in red- with Rock Candy crackle paint and then then further distressed with Mahogony Distress Ink.
The Bloggers Challenge is posted weekly on Fridays- come play along!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Shelly! I love your paper piecing & your stitching on your card. I've never stitched on my cards but hope to some day. My sewing machine & I usually don't get along. LOL

I saw you on the Outlawz & have become your newest follower. I would love for you to visit my blog Sharrahug’s Sweet Blessings
Have a wonderful day!

Shelly, this is a fun and clever card! Sew (get it?) many details and coordinated well. Crackle paint, huh? Well, add that to my long list of things I must check out LOL! Very cute take on this sketch!

I love this mittens card, Shelly. It reminds me of my Mum's 50s style kitchen that remained the same for decades. Red countertop with chrome edging. Today it would be called 'retro' and be very cool - like your card.

I found you through the Outlawz and I am now following you.
