Topic: Paper Embroidery
Seems that, between all the groups I belong to, there are several swaps or challenges every year with the theme 'roses'. But it is a topic I like so I do most every one.
I do own several patterns where the embroidery itself forms the roses. But I had a great diecut foil 3D picture and decided to use that in a frame.
I used a verigated pink thread for one series of scrolls and a burgundy for the other, matching the colors in the flowers. I did the stitching on a cardstock with extremely small chevrons in gray and white.
When I got to the steps of mounting I cut off the ends of the cardstock and turned them over to show a two-toned pink houndstooth.
The photo shows this with too much blue. The burgundy layering matches the thread in the darker scrolls.
