Use your Favorite ... whatever!

This week's challenge theme at One Stitch at a Time is 'Use your favorite'.



I used Bargain Hunter from StitchyStamps and some of my favorites: Found paper (newspaper, notebook sheet), heat-embossing, stamping on fabric, distress inks, tiny paperclips, and Funkiness! Can funkiness be a favorite thing‽

I used last week's Baltimore City Paper, a free weekly newspaper. 

I got the idea for the torn-pages background from a Whiff of Joy tutorial.The "hello" stamp is from Studio G, and the "Just Sayin" sentiment is from a RRD set. The tiny paperclips are from 7Gypsies.

Hope you'll join us at One Stitch at a Time for our "Use Your Favorite..." challenge.

For entries using a StitchyBear Store product (be sure to add a # after your name when entering), the prize is 3 Promarkers from Creative Craft World. You're welcome to enter the challenge using different products, but will instead be entered into the draw to win a $3 coupon to StitchyBear. Can't wait to see your projects!
