Sew Happy to Be WICKED!

December 1st, 2008 · 2 Comments

Sew Happy

WICKED stands for Wonderfully Inspiring Challenges Keep Educating Demos. Every month there are three WICKED challenges on the demo side of splitcoaststampers, hosted by a demonstrator chosen by the moderators of the demo challenge forum. I could hardly believe it when Jana and Patty asked me to be December’s host of the WICKED challenges.

I picked this color combination as one of the challenges: Always Artichoke, Basic Black, Bordering Blue, and Tangerine Tango (had to get orange in there somehow). The sewing machine image is one of the lovely vintage stamps in the Puns from the Past set (you can get this set and others in the catalog sampler at 20% off with a $20 order this month). I tried another stitch on my sewing machine and the stitching didn’t turn out quite as perfect as I would have liked it to be, but I think that it gives the card more character.

If you’d like to give this color combination a try, leave a comment with a link to your project so that I can have a look!

Thanks for stopping by!
