PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop

                                       
                                                          Embroidery Floss
For the March Blog Hop we are challenging you to use embroidery floss in a fun and inventive way on
your project.  This could include stitching, wrapping it around and tying it like ribbon, braiding, accenting
tags, embroidered patterns or anything else you can dream up!  We look forward to seeing your
creations!


For this month's challenge I used the Year of the Flower Sweet Peas, colored with Copic markers. I embroider the flower centers with floss, using a satin stitch.  The scallops are cut from my Cricut E (Plantin Schoolbook Cart)
Papertrey Ink Ribbon Hibiscus.
I loved using Embroidery floss with my stamping, it reminds me of my long lost days of doing Cross Stitch Embroidery.
