It is such a sweet inspiration photo right after Mother's Day. Then I think of quilted blanket, I think of my mom. She has made so many quilted blankets. And not smalls but big ones with beautiful patterns. These blankets was so warm. Maybe because they ware made with mother's love :o)
Here is my version of 'quilted planket'. I actually had a blue one but ´I decided to make a pink card for some little girl :o) I followed the sketch from Sketch and Stash Challenge - Challenge #87
I feel a bit like a cheater... My quilted pattern is made digitally in Photoshop. I used digital papers from Computer Scrapbook. Most of them are from Baby Girl collection but bright pink is from Friday Night Cocktails 2 collection. I made a pattern with 2x2cm DP pieces and draw digital stitching on it. If self drawn stitching is called 'faux', is it 'double faux stiching' then. Hmm...
And that's not all with my cheating. I took a frame from PMS Framed Digi Set, removed the white part, changed thee color to dark brown and pasted in front of digi paper. Then took digital Felicity the Fawn (she is available as rubber stamp in PMS shop. Grab her 'til you can 'cause PMS goes all digi soon) and removed outer white part and pasted on top of the frame.
I printed prepared parts out seperately: quilted background, frame with DP and deer, one plain frame, two extra deers (on watercolor paper). Then I cut frames out with little white border and fuzzy-cut two deers. One without flower and with only two legs.
I colored the images as usual with regular water-base markers and water brush and poped the deer on top of the frame with foam tape.

Other supplies: Stanger pearl paste - White Pearl on center of flowers, which are made with dbCraft Small Flower punch and colored with Memeno Angel Pink Dye Ink. Edges of background papers and flower border are distressed with Dovecraft Berry Purple Pigment Ink. Leaves are made with Marianne Design CreaTables die and heavy weight brown paper (same paper is on bottom layer). Flower border is punched with Heyda Flower Border punch and also used the corner rounderer from same company. Some glitte is added with atYouSpica glitter markers Pink (on deer's flowers) and Melon (on flower stem and under the deer's legs on front of the card). Pink ribbon is from my stach.
