i made these for my partner, erica_tattoos, in the hoopla diptych swap. Smiley

i made them based on artwork by http://mattlindleydesign.com, and it looks like his site is down for the time being, but i promised him i'd link back to him.

and my camera has died, so i borrowed the awesome pictures that erica took for me. Smiley








i painted the hoops with brown acrylic paint and wrapped them with purple ribbon. the backs were finished with pink fleece. Smiley

it's my 2nd time using backstitch and satin stitch, and my first time using french knots. i'm really happy with how they turned out. i made my own little ghetto lightbox to trace them.

c&c welcome!
