Embroider

Hello Everybody!

I hope everybody had a wonderful Valentine's Day!  I did-it was nice and low key.

Time is ticking for the challenge at The Craft Barn but I finally have made my ATC for their Alphabet Challenge.  The letter now is E.  I chose the word embroider.  And that is what I did on this ATC.  I used a little walnut distress ink to better highlight my word plus I used a straight stitch to section off my word from the rest of the page.


Here's a close up.  The flowers and basket are from a design in the book Creative Embroidery on Paper by Erica Fortgens.  I had originally heard about sewing on paper from Ecstasy Crafts many moons ago.


Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time my friends... I wonder what the next letter will be! :)

Hi Carly! I really did sew it onto the card. I used a pattern for the flowers. I pierced it then "embroidered" it. :)
