Uncovered Stash


I recently found this pre-made background panel in what I call my doo-dad box of unfinished projects, and decided to pair it with this stamped image I've had for years! I believe it's a High Hopes image, but I'm not sure. The background was cut into pieces with a MFT stitched horizontal die set, and placed on a smoky slate card base. The sentiment was stamped at a friend's house and die cut with a Gina Marie stitched squares die and matted with smoky slate. I colored the image with Copics and was glad to finally put these forgotten elements to use.

I'm sharing this with the Tuesday Throwdown #301 which is "Exotic Animals."

I hope you all had a happy and safe July 4th weekend and I wish you a great week ahead. Thanks for stopping by.

Yay for you at finding this cutie in your stash. It's adorable, and love that painted & embossed background. Brilliant to cut into stitched panels. This actually looks like a dimensional fabric with the way you've done the coloring. Totally cute. TFS
