All Stitched Up!

Good morning folks, you're probably wondering where I've been with no blogging over the last few weeks and it's because I'm in the middle of a huge craft sort out as I've got to the stage of not being able to find things!
As well as this my mojo seems to have gone missing too so if any of you see it could you please send it home lol
It's time for a new challenge over at Polka Doodles and this week the theme chosen by shell is Stitching - Real or Faux. I had to cheat slightly with mine and use one of the samples made for Nikky's latest and gorgeous Here Comes Christmas CD as it has stitching on it.

A fairly simple design here but with lots of texture and my favourite kraft card too. The cute angel is coloured with Promarkers and detail added with Prismacolor pencils and glitter on her wings. Don't you just love the sweet little robin! I die cut the panel and added a mat of kraft card.
I used a piercing tool and a brown fineliner pen to add faux stitching on the background paper then added die cut hearts, one from hessian for texture and another with faux stitching done the same way.
One of the lovely borders from the CD, some buttons tied with thread and a sentiment coloured with Promarkers and also tied with thread complete my card.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend and as this post is number 600 (!) there will be some candy very soon so keep an eye out for it!
Hugs, Fliss xx

This is great and stitching makes designs go pop. I know what you mean about not finding things. If you can't find what you want when you need it, it sort of holds the creativity up.
Have fun!
