* Vera Lane Studio: Stitches


Happy Monday!
I hope everyone is keeping fit and well.

It's a new release day at Vera Lane Studio and my DT day. Janet has released Stitches, a 4 digi stamp set which is perfect for all the ladies who love to sew. I made a card featuring one of the girls and the sentiment:

My little Stitches is in a bit of a tangle, but at least she managed to thread her needle! 
I coloured Stitches with Copic markers and placed her on a gelli print background. Some tiny hearts were stamped in Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. Zig-zag machine stitching was added as a border and the edges were inked in black.  I added a piece of torn washi tape to ground Stitches who was popped on foam pads. I threaded her needle with cotton thread and scrunched thread to rest behind her. The sentiment was cut into strips, inked and adhered directly onto the background.


I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane.
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
