Stitch It

Thought I would use one of the hand made flowers that I made at  Lovin' Ink  Craft retreat  for this card.  Michelle and Janet would tell you I had fun with this technique, the threads certainly had a different agenda  to where I wanted them to go.  I am in the process of finding the loom  so I can  get more practise.
The stamps I used are by Tim Holtz and Creative Expressions, I also used a new TH embossing folder to create my Faux Stitching.  It was coloured with tea dye, and antique paper distress inks.
It will fit the themes of these super challenges
Lets Ink it up whose theme is 'Show us your stitching'.
The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, theme 'Stitching', real or faux.
