Add Stitching To Cards - Part 1

Hi everyone! How's your week been? I've decided to share some ways to add some simple stitching to you card :) I've made a card with some stitching before and you can see it here. So in the next couple of weeks, I will share various ways you can add stitching to your cards. 

Today's method is a way to colour your image but using stitching. 

For this card, I used kraft paper, distress ink (Walnut Stain) - using any brown ink you have, stamp of your choice, some strings. I've had these floss years ago as a gift so I'm trying to incorporate them into my cards. 

Stamp all the candles and start poking holes in the image, using the lines as a guide so that I can "colour" the image. 

Simple stitching. Nothing complicated, just lines. You can do this in various colours and styles. 

To add some "flaming" colours, I sponged in Distress Ink Barn Door. 

Added gold glitter as flames and my sentiment and there you go! A way to "colour" your images using strings. I hope you'll try this method. Come back next week for another idea!
