Stitched Up (Real or Faux) for Let's Craft and Create Challenge #201 on the 5th of November, 2023

For this month's challenge at Let's Craft and Create Challenge Blog, we have the optional theme of

Stitched Up (real or faux)

I decided to use a few items that have been leftover from previous challenges!

So, here is my card:

I have used a fox that I had previously coloured for the September 2023 Card Chain Challenge and a square piece that was the insert from my Diorama card for Merry Little Christmas Challenge #53.
The fox is from the June 2021 Club La-La Land Crafts kit by La-La Land Crafts. I coloured it with the following Copics:
  • fox - E93, E95, E97, E99, W00, W0, W1, W3, W5, white gel pen
  • snap dragons - V20, V22, V25, YG11, YG23
I also die cut the snap dragons from this kit in white cardstock and coloured them with the following Copics:
  • purple - V12, V15, V17
  • green - G05, YG17, YG67
The background piece is blended with the following Distress Oxide inks from top to bottom:
  • tumbled glass, salty ocean, peacock feathers
I added stitches using a white gel pen around the edge of the coloured background.

Using my MISTI, I stamped the sentiment also from the June 2021 Club La-La Land Crafts kit in Bahama Blue Memento ink on to a small white square card from Envelope Solutions.
Then adhered the background piece, coloured snap dragons and fox.

Here is a photo of the snap dragons coloured with Copics:

As usual, I found inspiration for the colouring from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder and her fantastic monthly classes.

I would like to enter this card into a few challenges:
