I had to think about this challenge a while, I thought about using my sewingmachine to adhere diecuts, but I'm very worried about glue and ruining my sewing machine, so I had to think of something else.
Been a bit busy last week, today as well actually, with all the preparations for tomorrow, was tidying and found a red embroidery thread entangled on a needle..needle...knittingneedle...hmmm...
So today I thumbled away at this little knitted jumper thingy.
I'm not very good at knitting with proper sized needles, but these were even harder!.managed it in the end ;-).Most of it I made on longer skewers and then transfered it onto these witht he last two runs.
I sponged some Spun sugar Distress ink on the cardbase, behind the knitwork, to make it stand out.
few dew drops to help the eye travel across the card.
Pretty much a one layer card.
Merry Christmas everyone!
I'm sorry I haven't visited anyone yet this week's challenge, too busy, will resume the good work Sunday, promise ;-)

fed up with the Christmas dinner cleaning, so I went to visit a few entries for LIM and I found Gerrina had the same idea and she was post nr1...prob should have visited earlier hahaha, i wish it had shown int he thumbnail it would have saved me a few headaches lol!ReplyDelete
Maaike this is stunning and wow a real labour of love! Gerrina's card is also fab, but I'm so glad you didn't notice it and get put off making yours, they are both lovely to look at.ReplyDelete
