Scotch: It's breakfast.

I was inspired by all the crayon tinting I've seen recently, and since I've been on a painting kick latley too, I felt the need to incorporate the two.  So, I found the cutest squirrel EVAR on the internet a few months ago ( I can't remeber where, I have a folder of embroidery patterns on my computer) and since it's fall, I thought it was the perfect piece to try this on.

I painted this with Gouache on Bristol board and then embroidered the linework and details.  It's harder to embroider paper than you'd think, so I had to pre poke holes in order to even accomplish what I wanted it too (Which by the way, was the demise of my lazy daisy stitches *sniffle*)
Anyway, enough talky talky, on to pictures!

Also, i'll post more information on my blog tomorrow afternoon.

This isn't the best picture depicting the real colors, but it shows the stitching


The colors are way closer to this, and here it's in it's framed glory.
Thanks for looking!

Cute! Daisy stitch can be hard with fabric. I can't imagine doing it on paper.
