I wanted to show a few samples so that you don't need to get your needle and thread out straight away... The real inspiration is the red and white combo, the clean the simple effect this creates...
Here I have simply stamped the image in red ink and cut out,
Here I tried some faux stitching and pierced the stamped outline with my pokey tool;
Hope you can see the holes...
Now for this one I really went to town, and here's a wonderful site with patterns and sewing instructions (now I only wish I had some red thread before hand and didn't need to ink up some natural thread and have red fingers to boot, ROTFL!!!)
At close look you might see I went for a 'back stitch' where a 'stem stitch' is much more common but as I wasn't working with fabric I didn't want the card to rip. I also tried some french knots for her cute lips.
I hope you feel inspired to try something different and also to say that you can create redwork in many colour's it's about having some FUN.... If you would love to play along then enter your fabulous creation in the Wild Card Wednesday galleria :)
