Stitched and Chalked
I recently made this card from a pattern by Form a Lines. They suggested stitching in one colour but I decided to use colours suitable for the thing being stitched and then I coloured the design with chalks to make it look like a picture. I used threads by Mettler and Gutermann Sulky.
I think it looks OK and more like the seaside in Summer.
If anyone hasn't done stitching on card it is very theraputic and I do it while i am watching TV to stop me falling asleep!!! You have to prick the holes from a pattern and stitch it a bit like you would have made string pictures, going from one hole to another and back again to the next hole.
