A stitch in Time.......

Goodly day all
I'm literally last minute with posting this ! To be honest, last minute doing it too but i'm sure you will understand why when I tell you that the new fortnightly challenge over at The Stamp Man is....... Stitching! Not really my strong point and with one thing and another I kept putting it off! (no real surprise there)

Still I got there in the end with this book

 I had an Andy Warhol moment and took for of the Hero Art's engraved flower images and gave them the Andy colour treatment with copics before putting them together and making holes and taking thin blue ribbon and sewing as seen. I used the same ribbon to bind it too.
See, real ribbon! (Just in case you did not believe me!)

Have a great afternoon and do pop on over to join us!
