Topic: Paper Embroidery
On assignment for a 'tropical' paper embroidery swap I stitched up my pattern for a parrot. I haven't done this one for quite a while and it goes in a different direction than most might do - a beach scene.
I used a scrapbook paper with subtle tone-on-tone flowers in a diamond grid.
This makes a large card - about 5 x 8 - so the impact is great.
