Anyone for Anya - Stitch It

STITCH IT is the theme over at Anyone for Anya? this week and Paper Sundae have also got STITCHING as their theme. Am entering this card into both. I have used Kraft Card as the base (which I seem to be doing a lot of now) and layered on some blue cardstock which I got from the Papermill. The blue matches the Agean Promarker perfectly and I tend to use them a lot!


Simply stamped Surfer Ian onto the white linen cardstock. I was suprised how well the coloures blended on this as I thought the texture may have been an issue. The sentiment is from a SU set. I then went ahead with some faux stitching around the edge. A TIP ~ wait for the ink to dry before picking it up! Managed to smudge it and the black on my fingers have resulted in thumb marks :(

Remember to come back tomororow as I'll be showing a card as part of the La La Land Beach Bash and you could win some brill prizes simply by coming by here.
