CR84FN18, MMSC94, FTTC108, 1-2-3-4

Whole lotta alphabet soup in that blog title! :)  When I saw that Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge is to use stitching, I grabbed my canvas.  I stamped the image on the canvas and used Copics and Prismacolors to get a pretty watercolor effect.  I cut the image borders with deckle edge scissors and inked with Distress Inks. I did some hand stitching on upper right border and added some beads, then sloppy machine stitched the rest of the way around.    I used the color scheme at CR84FN of orange, yellow and Kraft and followed this week's Midnight Madness sketch. 

Midnight Madness - Sketch
CR84FN - Orange,  yellow and Kraft
OCC - 1-2-3-4 (1 DP, 2 layers, 3 stamped images, 4 embellishments)
Flourishes - Sewing.

Paper:  Kraft CS, DCWV Rustic
Ink:  Stazon, Colorbox Queues, Memento.
