Paper and Such Faux Stitched


This challenge is for fake stitching, which if you have looked at this blog more then once or twice you'd already know I actually machine stitch on pretty much everything. So, I find it more of a challenge then most people to try and doodle some stitches on things. I added some stitches to Melvin from the Melvine and Susie set to give him a little bit of an stuffed animal effect. There is also three lines of faux stitching framing the printed paper of this card also.


This card is 5 1/2" square in real life, the base is PTI kraft and the printed paper is from Me and My Big Ideas. the sentiment and Melvin image were stamped on some Neenah solar white and colored with copic markers. these were cut out and layered to the printed paper layer. So, it's actually an fairly flat and maybe even an clean & simple design. ( for me ;) )
