In & Out of Studio 3D

American Coastal
Topic: Paper Embroidery

For a swap on the theme 'light' I chose my lighthouse pattern and a dotted background. This paper seemed to call out for muted shades of thread so I chose a taupe for the rocks and golden for the light, burgundy and darke blue for the lighthouse accented by a steel grey. The same steel grey was used to stitch the oval border.

When I gan across this printed cardstock it seemed to be the perfect background for the card. I trimmed it to reveal a narrow border of the blue card base. I trimmed the oval feature piece with a 1/8 in border and adhered it so the red burst echoes the light beams from the lighthouse.

I used a small dot of gold Stickles on the light in the lighthouse.
