Stitched


Today marks another fine day, and what better way to spend it than showcasing another set to be released this month from The Craft's Meow?! Nina B. designed a pretty set called Stitched Flowers and there is a fun coordinating sentiment set called Stitched Sentiments!


The Craft's Meow


I started the card by stamping the flower medallion and coordinating leaves in a loose pattern with white craft ink. After heat setting, I colored in the images with some soft shades of markers and then inked the edges. I really like this technique!

Please stop by The Craft's Meow Blog for links to the fabulous designers, illustrators and guests, Larissa Heskett and Gayatri Murali, and to find out how you can win this set before you can buy it!

  37. Am WILD aboutyour Wednesday 18 card! Kraft + White + subtle colors always make me weak in the knees, so I'm sitting down as I'm viewing it. Actually I'm going to go downstairs now and play around with your ideas. Will experiment with VersaMark and hope to get the same shading results that you did around the leaves and all. Thanks for the great inspiration, Karen!
