Adding Stitching To Stamped Images with Neat & Tangled Barnyard Buddies

I love the beautiful detail of adding stitching on stamped images and I'm so inspired by the stitching of other makers so I've been practicing! Today I've got a few of my stitching tips to share with you and a little video!

Here are a few of my tips for stitching...
  • Use heavyweight cardstock to help prevent warping or tearing when you are stitching.
  • No-line coloring is a great way to add color before stitching and keep stitched lines from competing with the stamped lines.
  • Choose alcohol-based coloring mediums like Copic markers over water-based mediums to avoid smearing images while stitching.
  • Use Copic markers to color embroidery thread to match project perfectly!
  • Pre-punch holes for stitching with a craft pick.
