Topic: Paper Embroidery
On assignment to make a paper embroidery card on the theme 'Autumn' I often come back to this leaf pattern that I designed a few years back. This time I selected a coral tone-on-tone paper with small dots and used a burgundy thread and a simple outline stitching scheme. This is an oversized card at 5.5 x 7.5 but I really did not want to shortchange the leaf by going any smaller.
The background paper is printed with cable knit like a warm sweater and I added some scraps of clock that I created for another assignment (you'll see that tomorrow). Lots of leaf peel-off stickers link the elements and the sentiment ties together the leaves and clocks.
The leaves outside my window are starting to show their colors and I am excited for them to get as brilliant as this card.
