One Layer Wednesday #5


Susan's latest One Layer Wednesday challenge is to incorporate faux embellishment stamps on a one layer card.

According to Susan, a faux embellishment is any stamp image that "pretends to be a real embellishment, like a button, ribbon, paper clip, eyelet, brad, fabric or stitches".

I happened to have some faux stitching stamps and made these cards in a jif.







Close zigzag stitching,














a stitched flower,















and fancy zigzag stitching.




Once again, it took all of my willpower not to add anything more.



Hope you all have a great weekend!  Thanks, always for visiting my blog!

Stamps: Sassafras  stitchery, Skipping Stones Design
Cardstock: Georgia Pacific
Ink: Memento Bahama Blue, Grape Jelly, Lady Bug ink,
Versafine Onyx  Black
