TOMIC Challenge # 8 - Stitching Faux or Real

Hello,

I hope you are all well. 

Today TOMIC has the start of a new challenge. The theme this week is 'Stitching, Real or Faux'. 

Here is my card.


I have made this card for my daughter Claire. It was her birthday last week. I have added faux stitching to my card by using a guide to make my holes onto my card and then drawing in between each hole.

I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress ink pads onto 300gsm watercolour paper. The die cuts are Magnolia's Doohickey dies. The layers of my card have been 3d with sticky cushions.

I have decorated the inside too.


Here is the inside right.


Again with the faux stitching.

Here is the inside left.


The oval dies are nesties.


I have added some of Magnolia's 6x6 paper to the back of the card.


The stickle glue is Star Dust.

Thank you so very much for looking and do go see what the other DT have made. Utterly stunning!

It would be so wonderful if you could join us at TOMIC. We look forward to visiting with you all.

Have a good week.

love
kim x
