I recently won a fistfull of threads from Laura Wasilowski at Artfabrik. I had plans in the works for my Valentines cards and her threads were just the crowning touch!
These are done by drawing the hearts and background colors onto fabric with the Ink-tense pencils. A wash with water and a medium width brush to blend and set the inks. The hearts are embroidered with a varity of embroidery stitches and lots of french knots for a really textured finish. I have one more to make. That one is for my Husband. Valentines day will be our anniversary.
