PTI April 2014 Blog Hop Challenge: Embroidered Inspiration

Welcome to the PTI April 2014 Blog Hop Challenge: Embroidered Inspiration! I loved the inspiration photo:

And here comes my card:


I used some colored pencils to create a faux embroidery. Most of the stamps come from the Beautiful Blooms set (I think it was the very first set I ever purchased from PTI), the tulips are from the Flower Fusion #11 set, the sentiment from Bigger Blooms. 


And in case you would like to see how I created this, I made a quick video:



(please remember I only learned English at school, sorry for any mistakes!)

Have a great day, thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!

Vanessa

supplies:
PTI stamps, cardstock - Tsukineko ink - Faber Castell colored pencils
