Distressed, Stitched, and Faux Cross Stitched


How about some flowers today?  These gorgeous Power Poppy Camellias are about as far from the current season as you can get, but after doing quite a few fall and Christmas cards I get to longing for my flowers.

I did some distressing, some machine stitching, and some faux cross stitching.  Guess you know I love to stitch.  The Memory Box Cross Stitched Frame Borders have become a real go-to die set for me.  When I cut the cross stitched layer I centered it on a 4” x 5 1/4” panel.  It left a plain narrow frame which I decided to use on the card with the rest of the layers set into it.  I really wanted to use one of my new Paper Smooches Hello Words, too.  I’ve been feeling I “needed” more word dies and “hello” seemed like a good place to start.

The Camellias are one of Power Poppy’s digital stamps.  I printed on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.  Added a few dots of Stickles glitter around the flowers.  I shadowed the “hello” with pink and applied one coat of Diamond Glaze to the word.  These are the markers I used for coloring:
