Hey y'all! Middle of the week, already?!!...Where is all the time going?!! lol Okay, so today I have a card for the current Virginia's View Challenge!
I love playing with Virginia's challenges! They are always so fun and really make me do some thinking! ;) So, here is what I came up with!
As you can tell, I went with 'faux stitching'. I don't have a sewing machine (maybe someday?...). So, I did some brainstorming. I was gonna go with a sticker, perhaps. But then the other night, as I went through some of my stamps. I came across a set, I really only have used maybe a couple times?...if that. And I figured this set was perfect, 'Stitched Flowers', yep. Sounds like it was meant to be, right?! ;)
I stamped all my flowers and trimmings in black ink. Then hand cut, every single one out! Yeah, who's idea was that?! lol Though, in the end I believe it was worth it?...Hopefully?! ;) After all that cutting, I got out a little paintbrush and some water, along with some ink pads. I just dipped my brush into the water, then rubbed it across in ink pad...and poof, color I had! Really, just having fun and playing around with things! :)
I will say, my biggest battle with this card, was deciding whether to leave it plain or add sequins/gems. I went with pearls (been awhile since I used any of those). Was that the right decision?...Hmmm...
Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!
