So I have been trying this for a few weeks now. Last week I posted a layout using this idea with my kids during the summer. I just love the way the rays of the sun pop with the stitches. I decided to try something on a smaller scale and made some thank you cards.
Heart 2 Heart challenge this week. The challenge was to make something using this sketch.
Chairs To You Stamp ("a friend")
Thread is not CTMH because I'm just starting as a consultant and don't have any of their thread yet.
And while we are on the topic of challenges, I took the Color Q challenge and used this technique as well.
The colors are not exact but I think they match well enough.
Materials used: Endless Friendship Acrylic Stamp
Shades of Yellow Yarn
You can achieve this look too by stamping your image first, then using the piercing tool kit, punch holes along the lines of your stamp. Finally, with a threaded needle, stitch the holes. A little time consuming if you are doing large stamps but super easy! I'd love to see your projects with this technique. Try it, take a picture and then post it in the comments. Happy Stamping & Stitching!
