ALL WORKS COPYRIGHT U.A.T. LIFTING MY DESIGNS FOR YOUR OWN USE IS NOT ALLOWED!!

this is something i made for my boyfriend, i gave it to him as part of his birthday presents...
the black outline is something i found in a tattoo drawing book, i changed it a little and all the color, background and shading is my design/ideas. Those are his initials in the heart..


i'm not sure if you can see it but the envelope is embroidered in white on white fabric, there's swirls all over it.

there is flesh colored thread in the hand and behind the hand there is a pale blue and pink sun burst effect

anyways hope you like it, comments, feedback and critique always welcome

I just finished commenting on some other things of yours and I feel the same about this that I do about those... it's gorgeous!  Did you put it on a shirt or frame it?  I wish I got gifts like this! Cheesy

it's framed, i don't really embroider on clothing, the stuff i like to do is usually to delicate to be washed even by hand. it's about 10 inches tall i think

Your shading is lovely, but I really can't see what stitch you are using, would you be able to describe?  Thank you!

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.

Beautiful, both the stitch and the tat! May I ask, are you using silk thread?

Thanks!

no silk thread in this one, it's all cotton thread, mostly dmc if i remember right..

and hellhound, is that a staffie in your pic? I have a pretty cute white and black staffie that looks a lot like that!
