There is a lot of inspiring stitching and watercolouring in blogland at the moment. I have to thank Virginia Lu for having a stitching themed challenge over at Virginia's View. It is something that I haven't really tried on my cards before but I decided to make it the focal point of this card and I like the look :)
I stamped some arrows from Uniko Studio in pale grey as a guide for my stitching and combined the stitched images with a great sentiment from Mama Elephant. The sentiment is coloured with blue wink of stella. Finally, I matted the main panel on some blue vellum.
I have also been practising my watercolouring using some of the great techniques that the designers have been demonstrating.
I white embossed the Looped Flower background from Hero Arts and used a range of distress inks - Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade. I white embossed the sentiment from Hero Arts Messages with Flourish set on vellum and added some black for contrast.
I hope you are enjoying some creative time this weekend. Thanks for your visit :)
