Our technique challenge this month at ILWS is to use stitching, either real or faux.
My sewing machine still isn't fixed and so I decided to go for faux.
Stamp sets: My Sweet Pea, Sincere Salutations (sentiment)
Textured Cardstock: Rose Red, Pretty in Pink
Plain Cardstock: Whisper White
Ink: Rose Red, Old Olive, Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip, White Signo Gel Pen
Other: Paper Piercing Tool, Mat Pack
My card blank this time is a 10cm square in textured Rose Red. Using the mat pack and paper piercing tool I pierced all around the edges of the card front and joined the dots with a White Signo gel pen. On a 7.5cm square of Whisper White I stamped the sentiment in Rose Red and then the My Sweet Pea flowers in Pretty in Pink and Old Olive, with the flower centre in Chocolate Chip. I pierced again all round the edges of this layer and joined the dots with the fine nib of my Rose Red marker. This stamped layer was popped up on dimensionals onto Pretty in Pink textured card and then again onto the card blank.
Tomorrow, a matching mini gift bag.
