When i saw the challenge for this week, i thought that i would do faux stitching because that is quite easy! But then, it is supposed to be a 'challenge', so i wanted to try something else as well :)
So, for my design today i decided to dig out one of my JudiKins cube stamps and try a 'faux marble' background. I also have several quote stamps, which i never seem to use often enough, which is a pity as the words are so beautiful!
My backgound was created on glossy card, using Colorbox cats eye chalks in Dark Peony, and Wisteria. Once dry my 'marble' effect was stamped with Archival Jet Black. I added a small piece of black card embossed with Cuttlebug 'swiss dots' and some ribbon and fibres from stash.
The wonderful quote panel is from Penny Black, which i've 'faux' stitched before mounting on the card front.
It's raining here and blowing a gale, so nothing to be done outdoors!! perfect for spending the rest of the day playing with stamps and paper!!! Bliss :0)
