Topic: Paper Embroidery
An online challenge was to stitch a 'water animal'. This is the only pattern I had that fit the bill (other than frogs and fish). I stitched him on a paper with a lacey pattern and afterwards founf the thread blended in too much. So I did some coloring with colored pencils. I was disappointed that the threads on the back made the colors lay down strangely on the front (like doing a rubbing)
I rounded the corners and used the last corner of a diecut swirl cardstock in my scraps. There is a blue paper with a subtle print behind that and a plain blue card base.
I do love seals. They always look so friendly, like a big puppy.
