Angels Landing Wednesday in stitches!


Hey everyone...it is Wednesday and time for another Angels Landing feature!  This week the Design Team is featuring stitching, and I elected to go with faux stitching since I cannot sew a straight line!  truth be told, this is the first time I have even done faux stitching, so be kind!

I chose another image from last week's release, Seasons' Tweetings.  These are such pretty bird images!  I colored them with copics and highlighted the leaves and ornaments with Atyou Spica pens.  For the stitching, I just pierced holes then connected them with a white gel pen.


I rounded off the corners of the card as well, just to be a little different! Be sure to stop by all the design team!  I know I always love seeing what they have made and come away very inspired!

The white gel pen worked great for your faux stitching, and I like how you've only done it on three sides. It's more interesting that way, especially with the two bottom corners rounded.
