IAAS - Stitching Real or Faux

Stitching - Real or Faux is the theme for the challenge over at International Art and Soul. My faux stitching is a bit messy but because it's close work my eyes weren't too good, sorry.

I used an 8x8 ivory coloured card blank by Craft UK and then added a mat of beige Papermill card. The Tonic lace layering die in large size was used for the next layer. I only fixed the centre panel so that the lacy edge stands proud. The flower stamp was a freebie from a magazine and I stamped it in Memento ink Rich Cocoa before cutting out with a Spellbinder die. I used the embossed edge to try and keep my faux stitching in place and for this I used my Promarker in brown (oops, placed back in tray before I noted the exact colour!) That was fixed slightly above centre and then I added two swirls in beige using my Tattered Lace die. The sentiment is by Lili of the Valley and that was stamped in brown and added to beige card too. Three gold pearls by Michael's stores (yay, I've had them years and just got round to using them) were added to the top right.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
The Crafty Addicts - Anything Goes/Use Die cuts
Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
Lemon Shortbread - Anything Goes
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
