Topic: Paper Embroidery
I needed a quick card with a 'beach' theme and turned to this pattern for a sea shell. It takes literally 20 minutes to stitch!
I started with a cardstock in light teal with a pearlized finish. This became the 'water' in the theme. I used a sand thread which becomes the 'beach'. Some houndstooth printed cardstock picked up both of these colors and I bordered the stitched panel with sand cardstock to set it off from the background.
Rounded corners on the main piece soften it in keeping with the shell image.
Sorry the colors are off as the camera does not like the shimmery paper.
