The patched falling scarecrow

Well, it took my some time to come up with an idea what to do with this 'lets patch things up' challenge. Finally I remembered that I have this cute scarecrow image, with patches on his cloth, so I could wipe the cold sweat... haha.

I chose this colour combo, once again fall colours. I love them. they are so vivid. The orange patch on the scarecrow's pants is felt fabric. All the stiches are faux, the yellow patches and the red oval were distressed - cut with zigzag scissors and brushed with ink

Since lately I'm in love with self made flowers. it is quite odd that I didn't use any in this card... nor ribbons. brads, or rhinestones.

So this is what I've got here:

1. patches - 365 cards day 255

2. embossing - diecatsrus

3. colour combo - color throwdown #68

4. stitches - kraftin'kimmie #5

5. sketch + stitching - my grafico sketch + mygrafico stitching

6. fall with leaves - pile it on

7. fall splendor - kaboodle doodles

(all the stitches)8. doodling - creative inspirations

9. doodles - creative card crew

10. stitching - Quixotic

11. distressing - design dollies

ב- 365cards ביקשו טלאי. לקח לי די הרבה זמן להחליט מה אני עושה עם האתגר הזה, בסופו של דבר נזכרתי בדמות הדחליל שיש לי, עם הטלאים על הבגדים שלו.

הקארדסטוק הכתום עבר הבלטה קרה של עיגולים; דיסטרסינג לצהוב ולאדום שכלל גזירה במספרי זיגזג ויישון עם דיו; התפרים כולם צויירו ביד.
