This year I’m participating in ICAD (Index Card A Day) again, it’s my third time. There’s a weekly theme with daily prompts. You can find the theme and prompts at Daisy Yellow.
Last week mandalas were
part of the theme and one of the prompts was denim, a great excuse to embroider
I used craft floss and many different stitches: backstitch, stem stitch, detached chain stitch,
slipped detached chain stitch, fly stitch, chain stitch, French knots, straight
stitch and a knotted buttonhole stitch for the edge. I started with the sequin
in the centre and kept adding stitches until there was just enough space left
for the sequin butterflies.
The background is acrylic paint and a border stamp.
