the finished stamp - showing detail of satin stitch and seeding
showing more detail and depth
The completed stamp was taken from an ink jet printed design. My objective was to enhance the design with simple stitch rather than detract. The whole design contains, couching, running stitch, seeding (single and double), satin stitch, stem stitch, using a tarnished 'passing' metal thread, stranded cotton, and a metallic stranded thread (which is a nightmare to use, but I am sure that is part of its charm!). Design is approximately 12cm x 17cm and worked on plain cotton fabric.
