I needed a thank you note for the people at my favorite cross-stitch store, the Strawberry Sampler, for framing my latest cross-stitch piece just in time to enter it in the local county fair!
The Kraft Journal’s Make it Monday challenge is to make a clean and simple creation with kraft; there aren’t many layers or embellishments, so I hope this fits that challenge! I did some watercoloring on Crumb Cake cardstock, after stamping my image in Stazon:
I used ink and a white watercolor crayon for my images. This set has been retired for a few years, but I still love it! And here is my project and my blue ribbon! Not too good of a photo, sorry! This thing is HUGE; it represents the four seasons and is by Marjolein Bastin, who is a Dutch artist for Hallmark.
Here’s a little better closeup:
I wrote on my pattern that I started this in 2007!!! Truthfully, I didn’t work on it consistently until last year, but I joined a knitting group that meets once a week; they knit, I cross-stitch!!! Thanks for indulging me a bit!
