Snowflake and Faux Stitches

Hi every one.

Another challenges are due at the House of Cards, and this month you have to make a card with stitches real og faux.

I have used the faux one, and could not decide the one to use so I made 5 card, using faux stitches in different ways. 

So here they are.

The die have used is Large Snowflake from Impression Obsession, it is great for inlay work.
I have use diffrent leftovers i blue and white. And made the cardbase from ColorCopy paper 250gr.

Here I have used my TH marker and made line like inn a quilt, Tried to make a little batiq background and used a white Sakura gel pen in those area. I also had a ribbon with stitches in the same way and a paper with stitches on.

Here I used the negative space of the paper after diecutting the snowflake. Inked with TH distress ink and after just dotted line alonge the egdes with a TH marker


For this one I used my ruler and started with the line diagonaly from corner to corner, and made stitch line along both egdes and moved the ruler lined up with the last line. Did that in both directions. Used a TH marker. Stamped som snowflakes I punched out of foam and sprayed a little water. Did cut out some snowflakes i white paper edged and used clear Wink of Stella on them and layered them with foam tape. The bacground paper had a lot of holes and thoug they looked like stitches too.


When I started this I thought to make simple cards but that is a hard one for me. But managed to make this farly simple. Here a used a trasing wheel from may sewing stash. Did press hard so the diples was easy to se. Took a TH marker and made stitches between them. This is a way to easy make even stitches. I took a lighter color and frihand the line inside the first stitches.


For this one I also used my trasing wheel. Rolled it over my ink pad and lined it up with a ruler and rolled across the paper inn diffrent directions. When I was done i thought it was to plaine and picked up several blue TH markers and dotted the lines and I got the look I wanted. I recomend to do this before you glue your images to the paper.

So this is my cards for this months challenge, hope you enjoy them, and hope to see you card in the challenge.
