Sudsy Stitches


The theme is anything goes/stitched.  This time there is machine stitching around the edge and zigzagged across the metallic washi tape, and some faux stitching on the diecut panel.  I used an EF for the background swiped with Versamark and then Distress EP, and also dipped the edges of the panel in too.  I quite like this monochrome look and the texture of the distress EP is fun..

Image: House Mouse/Stampendous

EF: Cuttlebug

Sentiment die: Poppy Stamps

Stitched die: unknown

Also: Copics, washi, Kindyglitz, Distress Embossing powder, white pen, thread
