Jo and Joe, the little pilgrims...


<>
These are my little pilgrims, Jo and Joe. I made this card with an EdithDesigns drawing. I used Bazzill cardstock and a beautiful paper suitable for Thanksgiving. I printed out the cute Little Pilgrims 3 times, to give them a 3D effect. Each layer was delineated, hand-painted and carefully cut out by hand. I painted the images with Caran d'Ache Watercolor. I used crystal effect in Joe's hat’s buckle and in the shoes of both and I added a beautiful organza ribbon. I sewed the layers of paper and cardboard both outside and inside with beautiful stitching on my sewing machine, using gold silk thread, which gives to the card a very elegant touch. I really enjoyed making this card!
I will enter this card in Mojo Monday Challenge.
