#117 For the man in your life
One Stitch at a Time is 'For the man in your life'. I've made this as an anniversary card and it could be used for male or female. The image is 'Waiting for You' by Priyanka over at Stitchybear Digital Stamp Store.
I coloured the image with Promarkers and then tore round the edges before inking them with Distress Ink in Spiced Marmalade. The wings of the fairies were made with fusible film and I burnt my craft room carpet when doing them! I switched my travel iron on and got the wings ready between some sheets of paper , on the floor! I noticed that the iron had a green mark on it after I'd ironed for a few seconds, doh! It was my carpet. Fortunately it isn't an expensive carpet, it's only a cord one - now with a patch of burnt fibres!! lol I've had suggestions from cyber friends to cover it with a butterfly or a flower, etc. That won't work, so I'll just have to admit to my folly when I get visitors to my room. Now, back to my card - the backing paper is from my favourite First Editions pad Hideaway. It's a beautiful glitter paper and is matted on to tan coloured card from Papermill. I used the same card to cut the Marianne die leaves. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I generated the sentiment on the computer and tore it and edged it as before. Four pieces of Card Candi are in the top left corner. My card blank is from Craft UK.
