Stitched Star - Lucy's Cards Challenge #9

I love Lucy's blog, she is such a talented card maker!! So I like to try to participate in her challenges that hse has recently started. Challenge #9 has to include stitching.
I really like the look of stitching on cards and I had recently made a bunch of stars out of old jeans that I stitched (thanks to inspiration from Char) ... a perfect starting point for this project.
I took inspiration for my background from Donna at three umbrellas. She makes the most amazing backgrounds that I've been meaning to try so I decided today was the day!! I stamped the dots on white cardstock with versamark and clear embossed them. Then I applied distress inks over top. I decided not to add dropplets of water but that looks cool too as you can see on THIS card.
Supplies: Stamps - Polka Dot Basics II, Simple Little Things (Papertrey Ink); Ink - Spiced Marmalade, Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint (Ranger), Paper - Whisper White (Stampin' Up!); Other - old jeans, sewing machine and thread, sponge applicator, Labels 1 die (Spellbinders), dimensionals.
Now I must go see all the other cards created with stitching on them!! Can't wait for the inspiration!! Thanks to Lucy for another great challenge!
