Just Add Stitching




This weeks Just Add Ink Challenge is to add Stitching, whether real or faux. I've made a 12 X 12 Scrapbook page of another of my grandmas as a girl. I've used the gorgeous Bella Rose DSP and Chocolate Chip cardstock to show off this pretty Heritage family photo. I've used my trusty sewing machine to add definition in various parts of the page, most noticebly on the tags and the rose leaves. The roses I've Stamped using the Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp set and then watercoloured them using Riding Hood Red and the Aqua painters, adding a bit of dimension with the Dimensionals. With a Finishing touch of Kraft Taffeta Ribbon.

Wow - I'd like to see this IRL - cause I think the detail would stand out. I love your stitching detail - the embellishments are lovely. Chantell

Gorgeous layout, Debi - such a beautiful page. The stitching looks great, and I love your use of Bella Rose DSP; it looks great with the photo.

I just love this, so much work in it. I tried to send you a comment another time(in April)I thought your entry of "In Flanders Field" was brilliant. You are a very talented scrapbooker.
