This card was a bit of an experiment. I was trying to incorporate stitching, water-colour and tagging in one project. Wondering if it was too ambitious… anyway! The process itself was fun.
I am entering this card into the following three challenges:
Virginia’s View – stitching
Let’s just say we were going for ‘rustic’ 😉
To achieve my watercoloured look, I followed this fabulous tutorial, using Old Olive, Blushing Bride and Daffodil Delight re-inkers. I like how the water-colouring turned out. I then punched out the bloom with a 1 1/4″ circle and made a corresponding circle in the tag topper. I offset the circle so that the black peeped out from behind, and then popped it up with dimensionals. I did add a bit of extra colour around the centre of the bloom with a Stampin’ Write marker in So Saffron, just to bring it out a bit.
I then tried my hand at ‘stitching’. I hand-stitched a little star in the centre of the flower and then did a bit of an overstitch across the top of the tag. Yep, very rustic, but everyone has to start somewhere, right? 😉
Thanks for visiting!
