An Embroidery Design with Extra Effects

    This design was purchased from Follow the White Bunny back in 2013…the Hedgehog in a Teacup was just to cute to resist and of course one needs to have a simpler embroidery to do once in awhile… This project was made with  two strands of floss and using just a straight or back stitch… fairly straight forward… 

     When I finished the main stitching I decided to use a diluted blue paint to give the water a bit of color beneath the cup which helps to give a extra enchantment to the piece.  The one other thing I did was to add the twisted ropes around the embriodery. The larger one is blue and the smaller is a twisted red and white…These all were hand done and then attached by couching…came out very cute….

Love to hear comments...thanks!
