Happy Birthday – ColourQ 37

Here’s a birthday card for my college friend – Happy Birthday, Poe!!  I used a new technique (for me) called faux stitching.  You simply use your paper piercer and mat pack to line up all the piercings and run your white gel pen between each hole to give the appearance of stitching.  Whatcha think – pretty cool, huh?

The color scheme came from last weeks’ ColourQ challenge, but I missed submitting my entry by the deadline.  Oh well – next time!

Stamp Sets Watercolor Trio
Ink Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Apricot Appeal, Always Artichoke
Paper Ruby Red, Apricot Appeal, Always Artichoke, Whisper White
Accessories Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Scallop Square Bigz Clear Die, White Uni-ball Signo Gel Pen, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Always Artichoke 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon, Crop-A-Dile
