Sand and Sea
Topic: Paper Embroidery

I've been working on this card off and on for months! I started it with no specific swap or challenge in mind and would set it aside to work on one for which I had an assignment. Then I got a swap signup for 'beach/seaside' and I set to work to finish it up.

The shimmery, textured background was sent to me in a supplies swap and suited well for a sandy look. I stitched with rayon threads in bright green for the trees, taupe for the coconuts and tree trunks, and white for the sand and boat. Then I selected irridescent threads in blue for the water and purple for the hills.

I selected one of my pre-stamped phrases on an irridescent green scrap and matted it with irridescent blue to match the folded card base.
