Stitched Circles for JAI #358




Happy Friday to you and welcome to a new challenge at Just Add Ink. This week Rochelle has suggested that we Just Add...Stitching to our projects this week. As always, the design team have created some wonderful inspiration to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and take a look and join us.


Whilst I used to be quite a good cross stitcher, the eyesight these days means that hasn't been possible for a while. So I decided to make the stitched circle dies the focus of this card and water coloured them. Some metallic thread lies under the layers of butterflies - as you can't stitch without thread now can you :-) This card was made with a special stamping friend in mind - though in retrospect,  copper would've been better suited than gold for her but will remember that for next time :-)



Card stock: Whisper White, Gold Foil, Basic Black, Vellum
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Night of Navy
Stamps: Dragonfly Dreams
Accessories: Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Dies, Beautiful Butterfly Thinlits, Triple Banner Punch, Gold EP, Gold Wink of Stella, White Perfect Accents (stickers removed), Aqua Painter
Non SU: Water colour card stock (TH)

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment to pop on over to Just Add Ink and see all the fabulous inspiration from the design team and I look forward to seeing what you will create using the fun stitching theme too!

Happy stamping until next time,

Jan

    1. Thank you so much P :-) Tina shared the details a little while ago on the shiny dots - they are the White Perfect Accents. If you take the sticker off, they are clear and using Crystal Effects ( of the Fine Tip Glue Pen) to attach them they take on the colour beneath them :-) xx
