Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #140- Stitching

Hello, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and more. This fortnights challenge is to make a project that uses some stitching or faux. 

For my card I have used an oriental stamp set that came as the free gift with this months Cardmaking and Papercrafts magazine. I stamped the images onto watercolour card with Archival ink and painted them with Spectrum Aqua Markers. I cut a frame from Kraft card and added some pink floral patterned paper before piercing two rows of hole around the frame. I then used some green embroidery floss to Cross Stitch around the frame. I then cut out the fan and some cherry blossom that I had stamped and coloured and attached them around the frame. Both of the backing papers I have used also came free with a magazine, but I can't remember which one, but they are a sample of Do Craft's new designs. I finished the card with a Thank you sentiment that also came with the stamp set and some crystal glitter.

I hope you like my card, and please take the time to visit my fellow DT's blogs to check out their beautiful cards.
