PI Day!

Yeah...it is my favorite day of the teasers! PI (Pure Innocence) day!
I have a couple of new PI peeks for you today. You will be able to find these girls at My Favorite Things on March 3rd. Yes, it is already March today!
I'm leading off with this "4 leaf clover" PI girl....I colored this sweet lil' girl with my copics and then cut her out. I was inspired to pull out my embroidery floss due to a challenge on Moxie Fab World.
Here is a close shot of the clover. I used my spellbinder heart die to make the impressions using the embossing mat and then pierced holes to string my floss through. I love that you still see the embossing even after my stitching!
Here's a look at "Happy Mail"....this was a fun little scene that I paper pieced as well as colored with my copics. I used the modern vintage sheets from graphic 45 for this creation.
My image was on a plain white sheet of Neenah card stock to start...by the time I was done coloring and airbrushing it fit in with my patterned paper really well. Lots of stitched layers here...and yes, that is some more twill....The postage stamps are from this patterned paper line as well that I decided to cut out three of them.

Make sure you check out all the peeks today....as I'm sure you will be FILLED with sweet eye candy! Start on Kim's blog for the complete list of teasers!
