m&m's world

I just LOVE these photos that my little sister took for me while she was visiting New York! She knows I have a soft spot for m&m's characters, especially the yellow peanut one. I made this for the January color challenge at Scrapbook.com to use all the colors of the rainbow. I love working with color and had a blast making all these m's. I used a circle punch to cut them all out, and then used an m stamp to stamp over them in white ink. I stitched around the circle using my twisted stitch again. This time I used black embroidery floss, and then rotated the colors all around. The m characters were very old stickers I had. I almost forgot all about them.I used my Cricut (plantin schoolbook) to cut the cityscape and title. TFL!

Here's a link to the color challenge if you want to play.

Here's a link to the sewing challenge I'm hosting this month that uses this stitch as the twist.
