Topic: Paper Embroidery
I haven't joined any paper embroidery swaps or challenges for a while now so those arts were set aside while I persued other things. While on vacation recently, I took along my paper embroidery kit with some cards to work on. It makes a nice activity that allows for watching the scenery, chatting with others and/or watching lectures and concerts (when they don't lower the lights).
I finished up three stitchings which I could turn into cards when I got home.
This card was pricked out in a floral/swag on a two-toned houndstooth paper. I had included a red/pink/teal funky floral so stitched the flowers and swag to match.
After cutting the pieces to size I found the floral too bright so I layered a quote on vellum over the top and wrapped the edges to the back.
I mounted the decorated panel to a soft blue card base.
