AYLI (DT) Faux or Real Stitching?

1 February, thank goodness, that means miserable January is out of the way!  Let's get on with the rest of the year and another challenge from the AS YOU LIKE IT team.

This time the theme is FAUX OR REAL STITCHING - you will need to use either on your make, and tell us about your preference.

I love the look of real stitching on a card, it seems to add that little bit of extra, but I just can't do it.  I have tried, unpicked, tried, unpicked ...... binned the card.  You get the picture.  So, when the advent of faux stitched dies came along, I thought all my prayers had been answered.  Why have all the stress when the fiddle has been done for you!  The faux stitching adds interest, without being overpowering, and finishes layers off beautifully.

I have used for this little one
and the little Leo is painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) with some
Polychromos Pencil help for his mane

The sponsor of this challenge is Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez 
who is providing a prize of 3 images from her store:

So, you can either dash off and haul that sewing machine out of the cupboard, get a needle threaded, or find your favourite faux stitch die, the choice is yours.

Hugs to all

Bright and fun card Squirrel and I'm a big fan of stitched dies too! Still no mail from you, hope it didn't get lost?

I should've taken a leaf out of your book and opted for the faux stitched. It's much neater (and being a neat freak that suits me to the ground). I love your Lenny, and all the stitched frames. The grass is fab too. Love his mane. Gorgeous. xxx

LOL, I agree me too, even bought a little machine to do it, it went to the recycling a couple of months ago. Your stitched dies are perfection, who needs real, love the lion and the design too.
