Hi lovely crafty friends, today I have a super easy and cool technique to share, it’s sort of fancy doodling, I’ve used this technique earlier, but I found another way to do the Faux Stitching technique which is sort of a combination between the Faux Stitching and free hand doodling and it’s even easier to do.

I started with two backgrounds made on Craft Perfect Ultra Smooth Card ( CST | CRF | TNCUK | TNC ) with Nuvo – Aqua Flow Pens – Summer Holiday ( SBC | CST | CRF | TNCUK | TNC ) and the Tim Holtz – Distress Sprayer ( SBC | JGG | BLT )
For the second card I used the free hand doodle lines and turned them into stitches. It’s also a two step technique but basically works the other way around. I show you all how in the video. I also doodled on the flowers to add to the playful look.
For the card base on both cards I used Carta Bella Paper Linen Texture – Ultra White ( SBC ) which has some cool linen texture, a fun way to add a bit off texture but not too much to distract from the card design. And the white goes great with the Coloured background, it makes it pop even more.
I hope you liked today’s technique and you’ll give it a try. Thanks for stopping by and make sure to keep on crafting!
