Phindy's Challenge - stitching

The challenge at Phindy's this week is to use any form of stitching on the card, be it real or faux. Mine is faux this time, mainly because I didn't have time to hand-stitch the whole card. :)

And yes, I've used another one of her Summer Cuties, just can't stop myself!

Many people have asked for a tutorial how to do the cloud background with Copic Markers. I will try and get the tutorial ogether next week. Hopefully I'll post it on Tuesady.

I like the sunny feel of those papers by Pebbles.Because they are so busy I didn't add oodles of embellishments.

Copic Markers:
Skin:E11/02/00/000, R21, R02
Rope and swing: E57/53/50/77/71/70
Hat and fluffy pants: R08/05/02/00
Sky: BG10, B01, BG000

IMAGE: Phindy
Coloring Medium: Copic Markers, Sakura Glaze pens, Inkssentials white gel pen
Paper: Pebbles Tree House, Neenah card for image
Accessories: Kaiser Kraft flowers, buttons, red yarn,  Dew Drops
Tools: ATG adhesive gun, glue gel, Big Shot, Nestabilities circles and blossom, Fiskars border punch (Sunburst), paper piercer, Purple Cow guillotine, Martha Stewart circle cutter,  Martha Stewart scoring board,

 Dont forget to check out the gorgeous work of the DT before you start on your card, lots of inspiration to be gathered!!!
