My friend Judy posted a challenge on the old - new - old Papercrafts site *wink*
"Where do you find inspiration for your art? A lot of us are inspired by others’ cards, but many other things can be inspiring. I’d like you to create something that was inspired by something OTHER THAN another card.
As I lay in my bed yesterday morning looking out at the gloomy rainy weather I wondered about this challenge and wondered where I would get inspiration on such a gloomy and dark day. My eyes turned to this beautiful piece of needle work my sister, Susan did for me. It was done with a technique called Brazilian Embroidery or dimensional embroidery.
After giving me this piece Susan taught me how to do this lovely craft. After paper crafts it is my favorite hobby. I had to shoot the picture in a goofy way to avoid the light hitting the glass but I hope you will see how pretty the stitches are. To give you some perspective the outside frame size is 10.5 x 10.5".
For my card I used a two sided paper by Graphic 45, Prima flowers, pearls by Kaiser Craft. The words are all rub-ons from MSE!.
Thank you for looking and thank you, Judy, for a great challenge. : )
