Darken that Thread!
This was stitched with Sulky Metallic 142-7027, which is a red/green/gold variegated thread, but after I was done, it was still very difficult to read, as the thread did not contrast enough with the background.
Hmm, what to do…? I reached for my ever trusty Sakura stardust dark red, green and gold and sort of colored the stitching according to the color already shown with the thread. et voila! the words suddenly appeared!
The 3D is made from wrapping paper, with Diamond Glaze ‘dew’ on the flowers. The font used was one I found on my PC, pricked and stitched.
This card was a commission for a wedding anniversary with red, green, black and white–whew! That was a challenge, but the customer LOVED this card.
