Topic: Paper Embroidery
The embroidery alphabet swap is up to the letter 'P' now and the assignment was to make a card related to Pets.
We don't have any pets at our house - all of the animals around here are wild in the great outdoors. However, both of us love to watch crazy cat videos on YouTube so I decided to stitch cats on a card.
I had a distressed panel from which I had diecut the word 'hello' for another project. I backed it with a different color of distressed panel and added the cutouts from the loops back in their appropriate places.
I pricked out the two cats from one of my own patterns and stitched them using a verigated thread that matched the inset lettering.
The cats blended into the background so much that I used a yellowish marker to color in some parts, adding a little contrast.
I used a cream coloredcard base with a bit of border showing all around.
