I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Thank you, it really is almost 3D, I have so much floss on there.   Tongue  I have to learn to stitch more carefully and not build up so many layers.

No, no, no! I think that effect with the layers is part of what makes it so wonderful!

I love the texture of your stitching, it's a bit more "messy" and energetic than classic needle painting... what makes it more of an "expressionist needle painting" Cheesy lovelovelovelove.

(edit: only now I saw you saying you have to learn to stitch more carefully, not to build up many layers... and I'll agree with rackycoo: it's an awesome effect! The downside of it must be the amount of thread it consumes, though... well, if Van Gogh painted straight from the tube, why not XD)
