SDC190: Stitches

Coby vanWilligenburg is our hostess this week at Stampotique Designer's Challenge and she has us in stitches:

I love stitches in my creations, sometimes stamped sometimes made by hand and sometimes with the sewing machine.  I challenge you to use stitching in your creations this week.


Our neighbors just had a baby boy a few weeks ago and so perfect time for me to break out some stitches on my card.

I had a little help from my friend Kristen as I've been in quite a creative slump lately so she made the suggestion on the stamp to use and I went with it.

I watercolored my bunny and balloon and added some Crystal Lacquer on the balloon to give it a shiny surface.  I decided to add the banner by stamping it onto some patterned paper and then coloring it a bit.



Hope you will join us this week over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge for your chance to win a $30 gift certificate for stamps (does not include shipping).
