Here is the card that I've made for this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge whose theme is 'Cheers'. The challenge this week is to make 'Drink' themed cards, any type not just alcoholic ones! Now, I don't have many stamps with drinks on them, alcoholic or not, but I do have my trusty WOJ stamp which I absolutely love to use.
This time I experimented with my hand sewing by adding in a few french knots between the straight stitches (next time I'll try 3 straight and 3 knots I think). I also experimented with my liquid pearls - see the faux stitching I created with them? I wasn't sure it would work but I'm pleased with the result.
The last bit of experimenting I did was on the image and it turned into a complete disaster. I tried to get a grid effect shading but it looked awful, so I had to ink really deep into the image to cover up the mess. It is quite heavy, but in the end I quite liked the effect of the light 'halo' effect around Willow.
