I made a bow with some gorgeous suede May Arts ribbon I have in my stash. My new trick: sanding the edges of the patterned paper for a distressed look. Like all my other phases, this too shall pass... please bear with me. LOL I curled up the edges of the patterned paper and the pumpkin panel to add a bit more grunge. I'm pretty sure that's a rule with Farmhouse paper. It shouldn't be pristine, right? *wink*
I had a lot of fun coloring it! :) The grass was drawn in with Prismacolor Pencils and the image itself was colored with Copic markers. As I do with all stitched circles, I took it one stitch at a time using the knob on the side of the machine. It's slow-going, and causes my hand to cramp, but MAN I love how it looks. I just work through the pain. LOL
