Stitching Week - Faux Stitching

The final day for the stitching feature on the Sketch Support site was faux stitching. I think that this has just as great of an effect on a project as the hand or machine stitching.

I created this tag using one of Allison's add-on sketches and I added some faux stitching around the mug. It really makes it stand out against the background.

Hot Chocolate Tag

On this layout I used a border stamp that I have and some white ink. It gives the illusion of machine stitching without having to pull out my sewing machine.

Just Add Water

On this layout I used a white pen and did little dots to create the look of stitching. This is a very fun and easy technique.

Sunshine On My Shoulders

I hope you enjoyed this week of stitching highlights. It was fun for me to go back through my layouts and pick just a few to show you how I incorporated stitching. I hope you give it a try.
