I combined two challenges with this card: WT141 and TLC91. I was reading up on different challenges today because I haven't done many of them and came across the Faux Wood Technique. I thought this would be a nice experience to try this with a real stitched card (real stitching is something else I haven't done).
The landscape image is from a SU set that I picked up in 1998 (the date stamp is on the label), but I do not know the name of this set. If anyone knows, please tell me so I can update my list! TY!
I used a Stampscapes stamp (the man in the boat) with the SU landscape stamp. I thought he was well proportioned with the trees and fit in nicely. I did faux stitching around the main image, but did sew green twine along the edge of the card. I distressed the edges of the cardstock to give it a more rustic feel.
It was fun to try two new techniques tonight. There's so much to learn from this website - I'm thankful for being a part of our SCS community.... TFL!
Edited to add: Some very kind folks let me know this stamp comes from SU set "Beauty of Life". Thank you for helping me identify this one!!!
