Rowdy Tilda

Stitching seems to be the big thing now... and it is for a good reason. It gives a project special touch of completeness. I always wanted to try incorporating few stitches onto a card. I do not have sewing machine so I had to go with handstitches. I used Technique Tuesday stamps as an outline, poked the holes for the stitches, and then spent over 2 hours finishing the stitched parts. I really like the result.



Stamps: Magnolia - Rowdy Tilda
Technique Tuesday - Frayed Ends (Outline for stithes)
Colors: Copic Sketch Markers
Blue - B91, B93 and Colorless blender #0
Light Brown - E55
Dark Brown - E27
Patten papers: Blue - Sandyllion Designs - One of a Kind RMKSCB46
Brown - My Mind's Eye - Falling Frost - SGC113

Gorgeous card - love it.
I have sewing machine but it died on me last time I tried to use it for crafting - like you I did it by hand - I know what time, effort and patience you have put into this card, but well worth it I can assure you.
