AAA Cards Challenge #138: Along the Edge + Sewing. With video

This fortnight our theme is : Along the Edge with the optional twist of "sewing". It was Elaine's choice and our sponsor this game is Stamplorations.

For my card I used a Bugaboo digi  stamp called Needle Queen, but there's a few in this category, check them out here. I've printed here on the edge of a Ecoline watercolor panel, suitable for your printer, colored her with Spectrum Aquablend pencils and a Dove blender pen.

The panel is from the same paper and I;ve added the sentiment in Photoshop, you can also do this in Word or alike.
Because of the sentiment : make your own style" and the image of an older lady, I went with bright and weird colours. I think it goes

with the sentiment and the image.

I've then diecut a semi circle from that panel and stamped a round stitched stamped around it. I  bought it second hand from Facebook, but it came like this, I have no idea who made it. But you might have something similar or you might try to do it by hand. I l almost did with the bottom one, as it is wood mounted rubber from TimHoltz/StampersAnonymous. and I  didn't wan to to mess up all my work.
But the Stamppositioner worked, even if I wobbled the stamps as it's very narrow.
For both I've used Versafine Clair Nocturn ink.
I covered up a little smudge with Create a Smile enamel shapes. Mounted the panel with lots of
foamtape as it's so thin and flimsy, then added the lady and then added all to the cardbase. Trimmed where necessary.
