I'm late to the party - the week just got away from me - but I really wanted to participate in the April 2014 PTI Blog Hop
The theme this month is embroidery
Not only was I late - but then it took me 2 hours to finally get this simple design done! It went through 5 renditions - I started out wanting to use my new button stacks dies - but nothing was working the way I wanted it. And finally - I ended up using two very old PTI sets - the sentiment is from In Bloom and the flowers are from Little Lady!
I also used the Make It Monday technique of water splatter over ink - and I love how it came out - I was going for the look of aged linen and I think I got it - I sponged Pumice Stone ink over Fine Linen cardstock then splattered water over it, blotted the extra water up and went over it with my hot gun.
I was going for this kind of embroidery look
Now I'm off to check out all the embroidered loveliness linked up over at Nichole's blog! And I'm also off to eat a late supper! (have to get that stamping done before cooking!)
