Being There...

I recently received a plate from Paperbag Studios which you will see me using a great deal. Its called Stitched and Tied.



Here I have used the bow, button and stitched elements from the plate to make a contribution towards this weeks Mixed Media Monday (Stitches theme), Wednesday Stamper (Red and Turquoise theme) and One Powerful Hour (Boy or Girl theme).
Its not a 3D piece as it may appear in places. I just shaded to create more depth (eg along the torn edge).



For those that dont like to order from overseas and live in the UK, the Stitched and Tied stamps can be obtained from The Stamp Attic.

The little boy is an image from Crafty Individuals.
