Warm Winter Wishes

I'm a huge fan of stitched details on cards. After I had masked off the heart and stamped the woodgrain over the entire card front the background looked a little plain. That's when I decided to grab some red embroidery floss and make the heart stand out properly. It also gives a rustic feel to the scene which is exactly what I had in mind. If you look closely you will see that I made two versions. In the first one I used the woodgrain stamp with brown distress ink and the second one is stamped with white pigment ink. I wanted to try both inks on kraft and I think I like the brown ink better. 





Supplies: Winter fox by Lawn Fawn, Woodgrain Cling Stamp by Create A Smile Stamps, Tim Holz Distress Ink Pads by Ranger, Tsukineko VersaColor white pigment ink, Copic markers
