Up first in my 100 days of stash busting is this card. It’s based off a large piece I finished recently in a textiles class, which used synthetic materials to create coastal scene which resonated with me. This card version is made from scraps of linen I had left from making tea towels.
I used Dylon fabric paints and Derwent Intense Blocks to colour the strips of linen, and then sewed them together by hand with running stitch.
Then, I stitched the joined pieces to stitch n tear so that I could secure it in an embroidery hoop and add detail to the sky.
Finally, I finished by stitching the windmill on by free machine embroidery.
This card is going to be given as an wedding anniversary card.
