First attempt at faux stitching


I fancied trying some 'faux stitching' so used this Pink Petticoat image as I thought it suited these colours and made a change from the usual pastel colours.

I used a piercing tool and poked holes at roughly the same distance apart then filled in the gaps with a black gel pen - it was kind of like dot to dot but without a picture!

Hopefully my next attempt will turn out a bit better :)
