thursday...hand stitching tip/technique

Whether it's machine or hand stitching I just love to stitch on my layouts!

For this layout I used my flourish stamp by Inkadinkado as a template to mark where I wanted my stitching. I then poked holes along the swirl and hand stitched the flourish with brown floss. I finished it off by adding rhinestones to the tip of the flourish.

Here is the finsihed layout:

Supplies- cardstock: Bazzill; patterned paper: Best Creations, Chatterbox; letter stickers: Basic Grey Basics micro mono stickers; bling: Stickles (Diamond); chipboard: AC Thickers; flowers: Prima, Recollections; stamp: Inkadinkado; pearls: Basic Grey; rhinestones: Kaisercraft; ink: Tim Holtz; buttons: Button Galore Rainforest; other: White pearls from Joann, vellum paper

I hope that I've inspired you to use your stamps as a template for stitching!
