Amy is hosting the OCC challenge here. Her challenge is to use colored stitching (no white). I started with no sketch this time, but with a vague picture of the end result in my head. I decided that I would ink up a stamp that I have had for a few years and hadn't inked up yet (oops). I couldn't decide whether to use designer paper or stamp my background, so I did both and in the end decided that I liked the designer paper best. I have to admit that I am guilty of using a lot of white stitching (mainly because I am too lazy to switch the thread). I like the boldness of the black in this card. Thanks for the fun challenge, Amy!
