Sew Much

Hi!  It's time for another challenge from the team at Just Add Ink.  Check this out:

Image may contain: text

Yep, Just Add Stitching - real or faux.

I used some stitched dies on my card, but I also went with a sewing theme using these adorable Lawn Fawn stamps.

I stamped, colored and die-cut the images then went over some areas with my Atyou Spica pens for a lovely shimmer.  On the background I used some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse over top of a Quilted Stitch stencil (see more stitching 😃)

Thanks for popping by!  The JAI design team have some wonderful cards using this theme, so head on over and check them out.

Products used:

Stamps:  Sewn With Love (Lawn Fawn)
Ink:  Black Licorice Hybrid, Versafine Onyx Black, Schoolhouse Red (SSS)
Cardstock:  White, X-Press It
Dies:  Sewn With Love (Lawn Fawn), Blueprints 20 (MFT)
Accessories:  Copics, Atyou Spica Pens, Nuvo Embellishment Mousse, Quilted Stitch Stencil (Echo Park)

A darling creation, Karren! LOve that little pin cushion - my mama's had a little strawberry full of something that sharpened her needles and pins!
