Faux Stitching Part 2 and Omission: Fabulous Frame

In today’s video, Melanie show you how to create a very different faux stitched look with the Fabulous Frame when you thump your marker on the diagonal! She also omits the belly band and oval in the frame to give you ideas for how you can customize the frame further with other stamp images. On this sample, she uses the magnolia from her Stately Flowers 3 set, accented with some simple Spectrum Noir marker coloring.

I love the stitch look around this big frame. Your coloring on the flowers is beautiful! I think everybody has this crud going around. Hope you are better soon. Thanks for your videos.  :)

I did, Liz, the sniffling couldn't be helped. Blowing during the video didn't seem appropriate. I did warn everyone in advance and apologized, and explained it was either skip doing my scheduled video I committed to or do my best. I am thankful that I am so rarely sick. :) Thank you for watching in spite of it being less than perfect.

What a marvelous design, Melanie! I love how you used the outside of the stamp as a border, slanting the marker tip! Beautiful and simple coloring ♥

Beautiful tutorial! I love how you are teaching us to use our alcohol markers. I am learning a lot and am encouraged so much. Merry Christmas Melanie!
