Stamps and Stitches at STAMPlorations!

Hi there!

It's time for the February Challenge at STAMPlorations and this month the theme is Stamps and Stitches. There's many ways to incorporate stitches to your project: I chose to use a ribbon with stitches but you could use actual stitching, faux stitching with piercing or with gel pen/marker, stamped stitching...Many fun possibilities! All styles at all stamps are welcome at STAMPlorations -check out the challenge details here. -you'll find very inspiring DT makes there too. There's stamps for crabs so do enter! :)

In my card I've used two STAMPlorations sets: VIGNETTE: Trendy Feathers and VIGNETTE: Eclectic Florals. I've colored the images with Copics -I tried to go for a slightly vintagey look thinking about an ink bottle and feather pen. :) My card is very simple because I wanted to draw all the attention to the focal image.

If you haven't played along in STAMPlorations Challenges yet I'll give you one more reason to enter: Every month a prize pack is drawn between those who enter all 3 monthly challenges. In addition to the monthly theme challenge (this month it's the Stamps and Stitches Challenge), we always have 2 sketch challenges too -the first one is already running here. Read all about the draw here and check out the fab prize:

Okey, that's all from me now. I hope to see you joining in the fun at STAMPlorations. Happy crafting!
