YES challenge time again, and this months called 
Click the link to go there :-) to see all my DT friends,
also showing their wonderful challenge pieces . 

I used a White Greyboard panel as background, but created all onto
a simple craft paper , to which I added very diluted black and little white
paints  .- After dry I stenciled with the new Stitches stencil - 3 rows 
of stitches ,using the Light Texture Paste .

The heart  from Lynne`s set 3- looking very stitched, was stamped onto 
a scrap of yellowed paper , and torn around the perimeter, to give place
to sew , one straight line and one zigzag line, on the sewing mashine ,leaving
long thread ends to hang from the hearts.

They were adhered on top of two pieces of thin fabric ,
already in black tones, - 4 buttons were sewn to a piece of white cardboard ,each ,
and adhered to right side of panel. Extra white threads were attached under the
hearts, and a rest of cardstock torn , run over the edges with Archival Jet black,
and after I wrote : Stitch , and adhered it to left side panel .
Two strings of metallic thread  was made to hanger, after punching two holes
in the top panel !

I think this is it :-) and wishes you a wonderful Wednesday .
It is my daughters birthday today, so for me a very happy day !!

Hugs and love

First may I say a very *Happy Birthday* to you dear Daughter Dorthe I hope she has a beautiful day..
Your hanging panel piece is a joy to see, a display of real and faux stitches. The stitches stencil gives such precise lines when used, so useful. I love Lynnes crocheted hearts the perfect addition along with your row of buttons.
beauty in monochrome.
Hugs & creative wishes Tracey xx

OMGoodness, Dorthe ... this is to die for. I love everything about it. And I must say I'm a little jealous about the sewing part. Can't quite get that down.

Happy stitching!

Wow - your embroidered hearts are stunning - and I love the cross stitch borders at the sides. The b&w monochrome scheme is really dramatic too. This theme was perfect for you, wasn't it?!
