MONDAY- Morning- experimenting with reverse applique or better known as Mola in the Kuna Indian culture in Central America


Good Morning Everyone,
I do apologize if I have not been visiting all of you, but I do have a good excuse when I'm not posting I am working on an art exhibit. Hopefully after December 7th I will have a bit more time.
 I bought this leaf print paper about a month ago and just love it coordinates so well that once I chose my design I know I don't have to look around and try to match up different papers from different stacks. It makes a world of difference in the time it takes to finish a project. I used faux stictching for this project. I was going to pull my sewing machine out, but realized it would take more time to just get it out than to do the faux stitching and because I am not wearing this, so the strength of the stitch does not matter.

PTI papers Ripe Avocado, spring moss Harvest Gold, patterned paper.
The cuts I used are from my Quickutz squeeze. (this tool has been sitting on the wayside for quite some time.)



I hope you enjoy this card.
