Topic: Paper Embroidery
Assignment: make (for a swap) a paper embroidery card for a guy.
A quick search through my patterns brought me to this billiard table from a book by Joke de Vette. Her sample was all in gold threads but I wanted to make it more 'realistic' so I selected a dark green cardstock to stitch on.
The outer rims of the table are done in green. I then stitched the cues with a tan and the balls with burgundy, purple and rust. Each of the balls is stitched with a different sequence, too.
I decided that the balls and cues needed to look more dimensional so I covered them with Glossy Accents.
Here you can see the shine and rounded shape on the balls due to the Glossy Accents.
I finiahed off the card with the addition of a black peel-off stitcker sentiment.
