Artful INKables :: Think INK Challenge #24

This week the Think Ink Challenge at Artful INKables is brought to you by ME and I want you to Use Sewing on your card- this can be real stitching or faux stitching!

For Inspiration I used one of the new releases, SEW YOU- which is PERFECT FOR THIS CHALLENGE:

I pulled out the real machine and did real sewing this time.. instead of my usual faux stitching... and I went a little crazy.... I used for the base a sheet of cardstock I had stamped fainter images all collaged on top of each other... I also did a few lines of sticthing on this base. I then stuck my stamped images on squares and stitched finer straight lines around that! I added some blooms and gems and voila! This was a bit different for me and still deciding if I like it or not... I do LOVE this stamp set though!!
