You're Such a Sweetie! for Market Street

Here is a card I made using Follow Your Heart and Simply Stitched Borders from Market Street Stamps. These are two sets that I find myself using over and over again. They are so versatile!
I really like how I can use the different faux stitches to make up my own backgrounds. Mixing and matching them inspires so much creativity!
I then stamped the bird and the branch using Momento Ink, so I was able to color on the canvas with my Copics. You really have to use a light hand and be extremely careful with Copics on any fabric, as they tend to bleed very quickly. I start by coloring from the middle out, and take my time to see how far it seeps before I go on.
After I was done coloring, I used some dark brown thread to hand stitch a border around the tag. The sentiment is also from the Follow Your Heart set.
Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed!!!
