Having played around with various plain stitched designs for my cards I thought I would try to incorporate another of my fave media (mediums?):- collage.
And at the weekend so this little piece below was born. I raided my paper box (which is full to the brim with lots of lovely papers, collected over the last couple of years, and which I might add is still in disarray, after my many attempts at trying to organise it into some kind or order!). If you stitch paper onto paper and keep the machine running quite quickly it kind of perforates the top decorative paper, making it easy to tear away, leaving just the shape you want inside the stitch.
I think I like this, so maybe this may be the start of my second sooziebee range. The only downside is it takes longer to do, due to the fiddly tearing part, but the end effect is a bit more interesting than stitch on its own.
