I'll admit that I'm more than slightly obsessed with the video game Dragon Age: Origins.  I really love the Gray Warden motto so I thought it would be really cool to have it cross stitched.  I designed the border myself, and even though it's pretty simple I'm still proud of it.  I tea-dyed the aida, then hand painted the "blood stains" with acrylic paint mixed with a medium to make the paint permanent on fabric.  The paint was much more vibrant on regular aida, I think the tea affected how the aida took it.  But I still think it looks cool.

I LOVE THIS.

This would give you a +10 with Alistair for sure.  Sentimental boy.

The aging/blood is perfect.

Beautifully done.  The blood stains actually look more natural like this.

I agree that the blood stains are more realistic this way. Nice job!

Thanks, everyone.  I was worried that the blood turned out too purple.  But I'm glad you all think it looks right. Smiley
