Julie's ATC

The Hand Embroidery Network ATC Swap is now over and I have finally received my partner's embroidered card... it's so cute... I love the yellow background and the buttons! Julie is really an embroidery beginner and she did a great job! Seeing it yesterday really made my day!!!

This is the ATC that I sent her. I wanted to work with complementary colours not only in the threads but also on the fabric. I love the pairing of yellow and fuchsia together, they really are gorgeous! The design was taken from a Publisher's clipart... not very technologic but I loved the butterfly! I also added some sequins to give the work more light and a backstitch green frame to give it a definite look.

This is the first time I take part in a swap and I must say that it was fantastic! I had to work on a schedule not to disappoint my partner and was able to stay in the timing. Plus, I had a reason to wait for the postman...
