No Peeking

I always like stitching on cards, both faux and real. I have accumulated a lot of stitched dies over the past couple of years since they first became popular, but I still really love making the effort to do the real thing because it seems to be the exception to the norm (a bit like me!).  After getting a bit wobbly with my stitches though, I am thinking I should've opted for the stitched dies instead!

I've used an adorable new image called Reindeer with a Present by Kinda Cute by Patricia and watercoloured him using the no-lines technique. 

Unfortunately the papers were loose in my stash, and although I'm pretty sure they're Maya Design, I'm willing to be told otherwise if you know.





Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:
  • Fur: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs, 
  • Antlers/hooves: Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain
  • Greens: Twisted Citron, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
  • Sky: Tumbled Glass
  • Reds: Abandoned Coral, Festive Berries, Fired Brick
  • Ground: Pumice Stone, Black Soot

Happy crafting

Great card Annette, that image is adorable
I love stitching on cards but have to admit that since I’ve amassed stitched dies in every shape I rarely get my sewing machine out
Enjoy your weekend

Another gorgeous card Annette... Love the image, another great image suitable for "Aussie" Christmases (not a flake of snow in sight, lol) I have to say that I'm very glad stitched dies were invented... I am HOPELESS on the sewing machine :-)) Donna xx
