Let's get stitchy...

"Let's get stitchy" is the theme at TIOT this time - come join us!
I wouldn't mind getting stitchy with such a beautiful pair of sciccors! 
The gloss you see is the shimmer from Glimmer mist - I used a background technique by spraying the mist and covering it with household foil until dry.

PAGE 9 of the wooden booklet!

I started with torn pieces of scrapbookpaper, and stamping over it with the border stamps. Then I painted it with watered down white acrylic paint. The swirls were heat embossed with black embossing powder.
