Saturated Canary Challenge No 2 - Thursday 13 October 2011

It's time for the second challenge over at the Saturated Canary Blog.  The topic this fortnight is "stitching".
For my card I have used the Saturated Canary image called "Let it Rain".  I have coloured her in with Promarkers, used my Tim Holtz distressing tool around the image and distressed with a chalk ink pad.  The spotty and striped backing papers are from Summertime Designs.  I decided to add some lace vertically as I always seem to do it horizontally and like the effect so I might do it more often.  I have then done faux stitching around the image and one of the backing papers with a brown Promarker.  I love the faux stitching effect but found that the black Letraset Fineliner was too harsh.  Now with the introduction of the fine nibs you can use any colour you want.  This time I used Burnt Sienna and I think it worked so much better than black.  I used two pieces of white core DCWV card and put it through a swirly embossing folder and then sanded down to reveal the white core.  The card has been finished off with a Craftwork Cards sentiment, gems, cherry blossom flowers, buttons, leaves cut with an X-cut punch, ribbon, 2 heart pearl pins and a diamante effect pin.
