It’s a Stitch Up

Hello again, long time no see!  I’ve been having problems with migraines again so not been in my craft room for a while.  I see another osteopath on Tuesday, fingers crossed this will help.

My card today is for this week’s Wild Orchid Challenge, which is stitching.


I have used the adorable Emily by Sylvia Zet for Whimsy Stamps.  Isn’t she just the sweetest little lady?

Copics/Pencils used:
Hair: E44, 42, 40 and French Grey 70%
Skin: E11, 00, 000, R30
Dress: BG72, BG70, muted turquoise
Pink: R85, 81, RV000, light magenta
Green: YG95, 93, 91 olive green yellowish

I had a play with one of the Spellbinders Borderabilities sets, this one is Bracket Borders I think.  I also went a little crazy with the bottle of Frantage lol.  Lace and flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, I used Cottage Rose, open roses in 20mm and 15mm, Lilies, Chrysanthemum and orchids
