Today I decided that I would enter the Ooh La La Challenge -' Inspired by Nature'.
I needed something gentle to sit and do so I was inspired to do some stitching. I chose a William Morris design of tulips which I obtained from Pinbroidery. It may have been gentle to do but it was frustrating . The patterns always seem to be printed very clearly but sometimes they just don't seem to work and a lot of undoing and consequential mutterings happen.
Here it is:
I used the largest die from the Xcut set of Rectangle Parenthesis 1 for the stitching base. The beautiful backing paper is from Cupcakecrafting 'The Premium Collection' CD6 ( a recent rediscovery) and the mirror card tulips were cut using a Memory Box die - 'Dancing Tulips'.
I did enjoy the stitching - and also choosing the colour palette.
