Keep In Touch - Whimsie Wednesday Challenge

Pin It
For the latest Whimsie Wednesday Challenge, Tobi, challenged our readers and fans to create a project with no colouring. I used Whimsie Doodles' NEW Telephone digital image to create this clean and simple card.

To add some color to the image, without using the 'banned' markers/pencils, I used some burgandy DMC floss. This color tied in the patterned paper and worked great for the heart, phone cord and to sew on the polka dotted banner. The center strip was embossed with a textile folder and the image was adhered to the card with foam tape.

There is still a few hours to play along and be entered to win a FREE Whimsie Doodles image. Check out the details HERE.
Just the details… (1) Filled the center of the heart with stitching and followed the phone cord with a running stitch, (2) Used a light tan ink to bring out the embossing on the ivory cardstock strip, (3) stitched the banner strip under 'touch' to bring that word out a bit more.
