Faux Stitching

I had all these little scraps of the vintage paper by K&Co lying around, and it occurred to me that they would be perfect for the Quilted Frames Technique (Technique Junkies). After all, there is a different pattern on both sides, and the print varies from one part of the paper to the other - it doesn't take much to look like a lot of different papers. The layout is this week's challenge from Techno Stamper.

After I completed doing the faux stitching around the frame, I thought it might need some around the edge, too. I decided to use the drywall stitching technique, which speeds up the process considerably. It's not terrible neat though, but then, neither is my freehand faux stitching.

The sentiment is SU, and the image can be lifted from The Sum of all Crafts.

You have been getting lots of stamping done! I love this scrappy frames card- and you are so right- the faux stitching does make the image pop. TFS

What a fun and fabulous way to use up those scraps. I love that you did the faux stitching over them. Great job. Thanks so much for playing along.
