Tiddly Inks challenge- You're A Stitch !!

Image-Tainted from Tiddly Inks.
Papers- Stitched Up paper from Tiddly Inks.

Its Tiddly Tuesday again!!!  and our little team of Tiddly Inkers are asking you to use some stitching on your project this week over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog. It can be faux or real stitching and as always please remember to use a Tiddly Inks image to join the challenge!!!

For my card I used one of the gorgeous gothic girls, Tainted, I love love love them and had so much fun pootling away doing this card on sunday night. I coloured her up with my promarkers and added a bit of glitz to her hair which shows up better in this piccy...

The delicious stitched paper is Tiddly Inks too. I layered a couple of the pieces up in my paint shop pro and then printed out the single sqaure for inside the card. I distressed all the edges to goth it up a bit!!

 The huge stitches I made myself using some paper string from ikea, fab stuff!!! and the cute yet gothic alphas I downloaded from Kelly's awesome blog.

The base colour pink is layerd up on foam and the alphas and my lovely Tainted are all layered up on silicone to make them pop out so I am entering this card into the challenge over on Papertake weekly , which is Truly Dimensional, the Cupcake Challenge blog which is lots of layers and the Haunted Designs Macabre mondays challenge which is Gothic pin ups ( and sponsored by Tiddly Inks too!!). Here is a piccy that shows the layers a bit!!

I made the flower by scrunching up some scalloped circles, loads of fun and very theraputic!!!

Right, I am back onAunty Lou duty today!! I have been informed we are making something bunny today!!

Have a fabulous Tiddly Tuesday and please pop on over to the Tiddly Inks challenge blog and peek at what the awesome Tiddly Inkers have been making to get you started, I can't wait to see your entries peeps!!!

Huge hugs Lou xxxx
