Just Add Ink #358...Stitching!

Happy Friday lovelies!...I hope your week has been a good one!

This weeks Just Add Ink challenge is suggested by Rochelle. She would like us to add stitching to our projects, whether it be pulling out the Singer, using stitched dies, or even faux paper pierced stitching. Any of these will do just fine.

I've chosen the simple option of stitched dies and a wee bit of piercing for my project. I teamed them with some pretty pastels, Crisp Cantaloupe and Soft Sky to be exact and water coloured on some SU Shimmer cardstock using the watercolour pencils, it is super sparkly IRL. 
I really love this big bloom from the Birthday Blooms set and decided that this challenge was perfect for showing it some love!

Make sure you pop over to the challenge blog and check out the stunning projects from the rest of the design team and hopefully you will be inspired to join us!

Thanks for stopping by!
