A Stitch in Time with That's Crafty!

Hi everyone! 

I'm back with a new post for That's Crafty! challenge blog. They have a £30 voucher ready for the winner and all you need to do is to create something amazing with products from their store and add some faux or real stitching. Did you know, they have a brand new stencil with Stitches. It's great for adding detail to your cards or any mixed media project. Check it out in their store. 

I went with a CAS card this time. I stamped Melina's Doodled Leaf with Antique Linen ink and coloured it with Spectrum Noir pencils and blended it with the Spectrum Noir Blending Solution as I was going for a more subtle and soft look this time. It just shows how versatile these stamps are! I stencilled the background with the gorgeous shiny Metallic Copper Multi Surface Paint (no, I can't and won't stay away from the shiny stuff, my inner magpie won't allow it) using the TC7011 Leaf Spirals stencil by That's Crafty! using a make up sponge. Again, veeeery lightly and faded it out. The sentiment is from Lynne's Affirmation set 4 stamp set and I LOVE this sentiment. It's so true and so beautifully put. 

I hope you get to join the challenge. It is always a great fun to see your gorgeous makes. I shall look forward to it!

Stay creative! Hugs,
