This one doesn't show up that well - sorry - I was photographing it to try and show the background stitching, but it was at the expense of clarity of the stitched motifs!
Anyway, it's a chain stitched bird with a little back stitched heart. The background stitching echoes the shape of the motifs
Both cards need more in the way of a border, but they are a good start ahead of Valentine's day next week.
This one is printed with the basic motifs that I wanted to use, and then stitched around with lively colours. I might go back and stitch over some of the purple ink, particularly on the ladybirds.
I need to add all the background stitching now. Plenty to keep my hands busy this week.
