Diamond Stitches

I so wanted to use real stitches for the Addicted to CAS Challenge : Stitched. Something simple. Nearly went the way of those string art designs we used to do as kids with nails in wood, but that would have taken quite some time.

Decided to go with a basic diamond shape and used the lovely shimmery thread from May Arts. Very difficult to capture the real holographic shimmer on camera. I embossed the sentiment with Sparkle embossing powder and the blue card has a soft matt shimmer too.

Trying a close-up to capture the shimmer ...

I will also enter this to the Less is More : Diamond Challenge.



  1. Красивый монохром.

  2. That's a real clever take on the two challenges! :)

  3. Very elegant. I love the blue and silver combination! The stitching is fab. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)


Thank your for popping by! I'd love to hear your comments
