Stitched & Dotty Tropical Chic

Good Day Crafty Friends,

I am back again with my favourite stamp set - Tropical Chic. I know I am bombarding you with posts at the minute, but its the first chance I have had to make it back into my crafty space after a week hiatus. Apologies, I am jamming them in while the visiting Mother In Law is busy and out of the house for the day.

I have used the cross stitch die from the Stitched All Around bundle to create the stitched background onto whisper white card. Before adhering to the card base I slipped in a panel of Lemon Lime Twist so this would show through the stitching lines. The images have been stamped in bright summery colours and adhered with Tombow and mini dimensionals.

The second card is another one of my "doodling stamping techniques". This time instead of adding drawn lines to my stamped images (like the leaves), I have added lots of dots to the Frangipani flowers.

It does alter the appearance quite dramatically but I really like it. It looks great teamed with the lines drawn on the leaves. I have also added stamped and fussy cut images from Jar of Love and Cake Soiree as I really like these two leafy images together.

Hope I have inspired you to get into your crafty space and have a play. Perhaps you will try adding dots to some of the images of stamp in your current collection.

Until next time, stay crafty
