MSE challenge - Stitching

Here's my entry for the latest MSE challenge. I'm supposed to be revising (don't tell my daughter I'm on here!), so couldn't take the time to do real sewing; luckily the challenge states that you can use faux stitches. :D
I'm not very happy with the sentiment. It's the first time I've used a Memento inkpad; I'm not sure why it produces lovely crisp images but blurry writing? Oh well, maybe it's just me!

Fantastic card - couldn't tell it was fake stitching till I looked at the close up.

What a cute image!

That is absolutely beautiful, I love it! I wonder if you are getting blurry writing because you are applying to much pressure and ink to the stamp? Try putting the stamp onto the pad lightly rather than the pad to the stamp. I can't see anything blurry anyway.. it all looks fabulous :) x
