Embroidery Thread

Here is another card made with the brand new cd from Polkadoodles - Pretty Sweet! All the papers and the image are from the cd I've simply added some real (yes real - not faux for a change!) stitching with a perfectly matched embroidery thread that I got from a recent trip to the scrap store near me. I already had some of the thread but rarely used it for some reason but now I've got a lot more colours, I'm more tempted!

The gems are from my stash and I've just added a bit of inking with green and blue ink. Pretty simple! The image is pre coloured and there is a choice of uncoloured or coloured stampies on the cd - great if you need to make something in a hurry!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Tuesday Morning Sketches: Sketch followed
Get Hippity with Ippity: Buttons or Bow or Bling (I've used the bows and bling)
Digital Tuesday: People Images
Creative Belli: String

  • All paperbased elements: Pretty Sweet cd from Polkadoodles
  • Everything else: My stash
