Stitch it at the Stamp Man

The new challenge over at The Stamp Man is to show us some stitching. We want to see real or fake stitches on your projects.

It was my wedding anniversary last week (and my birthday!) and my OH loves to read, so I made him a  bookmark to go with his present. I used my favourite Tim Holtz stamp- the gorgeous elephant. the background are sprayed inks and layered sections ripped from a book page.

My stitching is chenille thread. I made a few holes with my pokey tool and threaded it through in a blanket stitch.

I'm still busy making ATCs for the Docrafts Luffy meet in a week's time, so everything I make, I make an ATC as well! It's working quite well, I've got lots of swapsies :)

Ok, over to you, show us your stitching and you could win the prize!

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
