Can't get enough..

stitching lately! Is there a technique you are totally addicted to right now? Thanks to my good friend, Davinie for all the stitching inspiration!

For this card, I used the negative of my die cut sheet from Fancy Pants and traced the wing shapes onto my paper, then stitched around the pencil lines. Next, I adhered some swirl rub ons for the inside of the wings from Tinkering Ink (Floral Frippery rub ons). I used a bottle of clear glue with a fine point on it to cover the little swirl rub ons, then sprinkled fine glitter over the top and let dry.
(Will be in Paper Trends Aug/Sept 2008 issue.)

This was done for the "inspiration of the week" over at Create My Keepsake, come on over and visit us! Such talented people there, I tell ya. Lots of inspiration always!
