Say it Isn't Sew!

Its Tuesday and time for a Challenge at Top Tip Tuesday This week is our reminder ½ way post

The Challenge is:
Say it Isn't Sew! - so although I love using my sewing machine this challenge is to use any other form of sewing other than machine Sewing!
We have 2 sponsors 
The Lovely Saturated Canary and Fred She Said 
and we are also offering a tipper prize of a Guest Design spot

For my card I have used the Gorgeous image
 Pearl Thanks Krista

I have coloured her with Spectrum Noir Pens.

Tips - If you feel faux sewing does not look good when you try hard to keep it straight then make squiggly ones instead, also you can thread twine through die cuts to mimic sewing it into place too.

Here are some challenges I am playing along with:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Your Favorite Color Combo - Blues
Cupcake Craft - Monochromatic
Papertake - One paper taker
Cutie Pie Challenge - Clean & Simple
Love to Scrap - Cut it out
Stamp and Create - Use at least 1 Die Cut

Hope you can come and play at Top Tip Tuesday
