I'll also be playing at Addicted the CAS with their challenge of "Stitched".
I started with one of the marbled backgrounds I created a few weeks ago using shaving foam and reinkers. While I was playing with different colors of reinkers, this is one combination that I really liked and uses New Leaf and Berry Sorbet from Papertrey Ink. I still have several of these backgrounds to use in a variety of colors. I'm not 100% certain that my card will qualify as clean and simple but since everything is adhered directly to the card base and not popped up on foam, I think it will be okay.
The little doily medallions I used are from My Favorite Things and are perfect for this technique. All the "stitching" is done using Gold Thread but you can also use Gold Floss. The leaves are from a Memory Box die that is currently MIA. I know it's somewhere on my desk. I used Berry Sorbet Cardstock for the card base and flowers along with a mat of gold cardstock. The Hello greeting is a Simon Says Stamp Exclusive. This was a quick and easy card and I enjoyed taking time to do the Spirelli instead of a coloring technique this time.
Thank you so much for spending a few minutes with me today. Be sure to watch the video tutorial at the link provided if you are interested in trying this technique.
