Featured Stamper Challenge #136

This is my card for today's Featured Stamper Challenge.

Congratulations Shannan (Steubner). I am a big fan of your creations. I chose this card of yours to case:
Omitted ribbon and scallop mat around image
Made my BG squares larger
Faux stitched my squares

I used this sweet new release CHARLIE HARVEST TIME from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS:

WHAT I DID: My card is 4 1/2" square. I stamped my image and layered with DP. 15 layers! Wow! For definition I sponged the edges of each layer with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain. It helps make it stand out. Also I wanted to include the two wheats that come with this set so I stamped them on the dP BG squares. I chose to faux stitch on the squares instead of sewing machine. I tried to make it look like sewing machine by giving it a carefree whimsical look, I get when I sew fast. Hee

Thank you for visiting.
