I have seen so many projects using the bleeding Sharpie technique and I wanted to try it! So I drew a crow with black marker on a chunky canvas. After spritzing with rubbing alcohol, I loved the bleeding effect (purple was a surprise!), but the original drawn line became too faded. So I embroidered back over the lines with black thread to pop the crow back up and into focus. I added some sashiko-inspired stitches to create movement and to highlight the interesting paths of the ink-bleed lines. Kind of a fun experiment!
