Challenge - Fish

I belong to a local group of the Swedish Embroiderers Guild. We meet about once a month and for every time we try to come up with different challenges. We didn't jave a meeting in July because most of us were on holiday but now everyone is back again. This is the August challenge. To make a postcard with a fish on it.



I stamped that fabric with bubblewrap and a homemade stamp and the I stitched it by hand.

I like your interpretation Annica. The bubble printing is very effective.

Very cute! I like the bubble wrap stamp and the circles from it echoed in the French knots.

I love the fish. I really must try stamping with bubblewrap.

The challenge part sounds like a fun part....maybe I should try interesting my little creative group for something similar. We meet about every second week so we could have a challenge like once a month maybe.

Take care
