Today I managed to get a little painting done. I have one art card with flowers left so more are needed for the Trade Show next week in Halifax. My base is the interfacing used to stiffen the top part in making draperies. It can be purchased in rolls that are about 4 inches wide or by the metre / yard. I paint the grass and sky then add stitching. I use bobbin stitching for the stem and leaves and free motion for the flowers. Usually the flowers are either hand stitched or free motioned on organza and then hand stitched to the background. Have a look at a previous post for more samples of these cards. HERE for felted cards and HERE for iceberg cards.
