Sew Happy in your new home ... TSP - sewing challenge Week 9

Fun this week painting mushroom type houses with my new inktense pencils ....  for The Sailing Pineapply sew it challenge. There is faux stitching around the image and a little X stitch in the top left and bottom right.
After printing the image from my computer, I did actually coat it in a thin layer of clear gesso. I was using regular white Stampin' Up! whisper white cardstock. I did not want the colors to absorb into the paper, but stay vibrant ontop of the gesso. And besides, I loooove the scratchiness of clear gesso.

The background was made using the bargello quilting technique. I used a variety of papers and a thin coat of gesso to subdue them a little as they were pretty stark colors. I added some splatters of white too :)
There is a really cool pair of flip flops as a freebie this week at The Sailing Pineapple blog, maybe take a look and play along .... sailingpineapple.blogspot.ca/2014/07/challenge-no-9-sew-cute.html
