This cartoon by Andy Riley is from the book 'Great lies to tell small kids'  Wink
I stitched it up because it makes me laugh!

Magpies are my favourite bird so it was about time I embroidered another one!
This little guy is slightly padded to make him more lifelike and I used fabric paints for the background. I used some wool and silk strings for texture on the tree stump.
Thanks for taking a look!  Grin

I agree with kittykill I wouldn't do anything to the back other than stitch in the thread ends as I went along. Or you could do your embroidery on a separate piece of cotton and then applique that to your hankie?

Love this - those frames are perfect for this piece and i love how you stitched the 'flashes' of colour behind the figures

Silk shading is a good way of adding depth if you are willing to fill stitch the whole thing. Otherwise you can use crayon tinting or go for a cross hatch effect with your embroidery.

I received my tin from Sonjaboo today- it is amazing. She went with Hannibal Lecter from my list of wicked kids. He arrived with a wonderful letter from the childrens home where he was residing thanking me for taking the troubled boy into my care! 'He is interested in many things, particularly cooking, the sciences and games. He is quite fond of fava beans at dinner and I'm sure he would find it quite a treat if you prepared some'  Grin Grin Grin
Ok, the front:

love the chianti cork pedestal, and doll parts!!
the back with the famous death's head moth:

and fab details, hannibal himself and tiny cookery book!

It is so fantastic and full of great details- thank you soooo much Sonjaboo!!
