This week the challenge on the "TMITA/PCC blog is hosted by Sue Walsh. She has asked us to use this cute digital bear image by Nina May to make a Valentine gift tag with some stitching somewhere on it. I have made lots of valentines with red and white so decided to use pink and white for this one. The cute bear was printed off and then colored with Copic markers. He wants to say he "loves you" to someone special so love was printed in the center and a small rhinestone flower added. I cut out a white tag and then cut another pink one just a little larger for the layered look. A piece of dp was cut then stitched to the tag. I created a flower with two pieces of silk flowers and a punched center using pink cs and a SU punch. Small "button" brads were added to the corners and the center of the flower. Leaves created with a MS punch were added around the flower. Two shades of pink cs were used to punch the butterfly then it was embossed with the Cuttlebug dotted Swiss embossing folder. To complete the tag I added some dotted Swiss ribbon to the top. This is going to be a cute little tag to put with a Valentine treat for a sweet little girl.
This free cute digital bear image and the instructions for the challenge are over on the TMITA/PCC blog here. I hope you will join in on this challenge. Below is a picture of the gift that will be given to the winner of the random drawing.
