Pile It On! Challenge - Stitching

This week at Pile It On! our challenge theme is:

'Stitching'
(Real or Faux)

Our sponsor this week is:


Prize - $10 Gift Voucher to spend at Floppy Latte Digital Designs!

I love a bit of faux stitching...so this was a lovely easy challenge for me! The image I've used is one of my oldest (and still most favourite) stamps...'Birthday Dog' by Penny Black, which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The papers are also by Penny Black...from their new 'Maddison' paper pad...I added my faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen...I find that the little pierced holes make the stitching look much more realistic.The sentiment stamp is from the 'Cupcakes' set by Hero Arts, the stars and circles were cut using Nesties, the buttons (there's two layered up) are by Papermania, and the twine is from the Ribbon Girls.


Here are the challenges I've piled on:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
