Sugar Stitch

As promised a card! After a very lazy Easter weekend with very little crafting going on – shock! Horror! I have managed to finish this card for you today.

I’ve used the Twilight In Provence Papers from Designs By Krista which, btw, is only $1 and Krista has a sale going on at her shop with lots of yummy downloadable kits for fantastic prices.

The beautiful Sugar Nellie stamp is coloured with my usual mix of Derwent and Prismacolor pencils but I’ve also used the Shimmerz paints Blue Sky, Sunflower and Sugar Plum to add that extra shine.

Then you might notice a bit of hand stitching again?



Materials:
Stamp – Sugar Nellie
Inks – VersaFine Onyx Black; VersaColor blue; Distress inks broken china, lavender
Colouring – Prismacolor pencils; Derwent pencils; Sansodor; Shimmerz paints
Papers – Designs By Krista
Usual suspects – Double-sided tape; Paper trimmer; scissors
Other – Embroidery thread; needle
