CCM #164 Stitching, Faux or Real

Today at Crafty Cardmakers we would love to see all your projects that contain stitching. This can be real as in any form of thread work, machine stitching, embroidery etc., or faux, drawn or stamped stitched lines, or as I have done, I created my faux stitching with a die.

164 Stitching Faux or Real

My card is sympathy card. I started with a Rubbernecker stamp which I stamped in two parts, the coloured part was brushos painted on and then spritzed to activate more. I did go a little heavy handed and this is actually a second generation stamp because the first was too concentrted with colour.

164 Close Up

When the coloured area is in place there is a second stamp to put the detail in. I die cut the result out with a Gina K Oval Cross Stich die, and matted it onto a Spellbinders diecut mat. The background is from Crafters Companion a lovely embossing folder that embosses one side and debosses the other. The sentiment is from Anna Griffin.
