Adding faux stitching to an ATC

I love to do faux stitching, its so easy and effective to make the holes with a piercing tool and link them with a white gel pen. Here is my make for Wicked Wednesdays 'Stitching' challenge, sponsored by That Craft Place. This is Love from Sugar :
The background is distress ink onto gloss cardstock. I love the cotton candy colors :) Sugar is printed, colored with copics and fussy cut. I punched additional hearts, she is spreading the love far and wide ...

The faux stitching is added as the ground for Sugar to stand on. I quite liked that idea. I don't like my images un-grounded, just floating in space, and often I use washi tape for the group, but loved the stitching here :)
