Papertrey Ink March 2016 Blog Hop

Nichole Heady almost stumped me with the inspiration photos she choose for the Papertrey Ink March 2016 Blog Hop. The stitch work of Izziyana Suhaimi is really stunning and, in the end, it was the first photo with the white stitched flower that gave me the starting point for my design.

Blog hop inspiration 5


A sentiment from Graceful Greetings and the largest peony from Peonies On Parade were stamped with Versamark ink and clear embossed on a white cardstock panel. The panel was die cut with a stitched rectangle die before being inked with Pumice Stone and Weathered Wood Distress Inks.




After the panel was inked, three strands of embroidery floss were used to add five French knots in the center of the peony.




The finished panel is mounted on an Aqua Mist panel and then a Smoky Shadow card base.

I am really intrigued to see the cards in the gallery this month and am off to Hop.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jacquie

  16. Gorgeous, Jacquie! I had to read that you started out with white card stock and embroidered in clear. First glance, I thought you white embossed on colored cardstock. Love your pop of color with the French knots!
