Today's one is a GD project for scrapping4fun (thanks, ladies!). Their newest challenge asks for "Techniques", and you may interprete the task as you want. I decided to go for my favourite technique which is - as you might have noticed - stitching, or card embroidery.
So, first thing to do was choosing the stitching pattern. Then, I started looking for something that would be suitable for the central motif. In the end, I picked one of the wonderful Flower Fairies by Cicely Mary Baker.
I'm not sure why I ended up with the Poppy fairy, but the combination of red and green seemed to be perfect. I used those colours to stitch the central part of the frame, and additionally picked brown and black for the corners.
Finally, I added shimmering brown gemstones to the corners, and three black gemstones to each of the red swirls, which now look like poppy blossoms.
