Just Inklined to Blog Hop!

Happy Monday morning, Crafty Bloglanders! It's time for another Just Inklined blog hop and this month we're stitching you up!  Haha! Yup, the theme of our hop is 'Stitching, real or faux' and I know my lovely Teamies will have been hard at work to bring you some wonderful inspiration.

If you've arrived here from the marvellous Mina's blog then you're on the right path. If not, jump back to Debbie's blog and start from the beginning because you won't want to miss anything along the way!

This one is my Daughter's friend's Christmas card - sshhh, don't tell!  D's friend loves pugs and as soon as I saw this sweet little image, I knew it had to be done!

Image: Just Inklined, 'Pug in a Box'

Papers: 'Christmas Eve' digital papers by Jazzy Patterns, available here

Sentiment Circle: Pink Gem Designs, available here 

Isn't he sweet?  I hope I've got his colouring right.  He was done with my Copics, a combination of E50 and all the warm greys.  The background was done with my Prismas, of course and the box was paperpieced.

As I was colouring the background, I realised it had naturally formed a triangle and the idea for a tree shape was born!  I wasn't sure it would work but, actually, I think it's quite fun!

The original image I coloured was too small, I decided, so I've cut him out of his box and used him on a matching gift tag - what a cutie!

As well as the Hop, this is my entry for this week's Daring Cardmakers' Challenge, which is to use the colour turqoise.

Right, that's me done! Your next hop will be to my talented Teamie Cathy - she'll have something wonderful for you, as always.

Happy crafting.
