For S C D this week we were given the letter X to create something, anything with an X and for mine I gave this pretty little dress some x stitch.
The image is from Lisa's Altered Art (See link in side bar) and the background is my own work... I feel a little tute coming on as to how I did it....
IF I can stop getting butterflys in my belly at the thought of it.
The stamps are from Fiskars which I won a while back.
