ABC S for Stitching

Our challenge at ABC this time is S for Stitching, that can be real, faux, hand machine or like I have done, embroidery

We are sponsored by Tilda’s Town with voucher for their store.

ABC S Stitching '13 Card Only

I created my card by pricking the corners and the teardrop shapes onto white card with silver flakes debossed into it, and then stitched the pricked holes with variegated cotton. The vase was a stitching peel off I found when I was having a stash clearout! I stuck the peel off over some purple card and then stitched through. The roses are various stash flowers. The purple daisy paper is an embossed foil paper, again been in my stash since time immemorial …

I also made a box for this, from silver holographic patterned mirri card and acetate and added some acetate stickers, and peel offs, which I first coloured purple, around the edges.
