This is the first challenge I've ever participated in so I threw myself into it and came out with a piece that I quite like!



I went with watercolours to tint the fabric as I've suddenly lost my crayons but they were my immediate thought as to what I should do to add colour without going over the top with my satin stitch or long and short stitch. Most of it is back stitch using either two threads for outlining or one for the delicacy I thought was needed inside the main outlines.








The other option for the title was I'm astag-ded

Your fill stitch is amazing!  I have yet to master that and am a bit jealous!

Thanks!
I'd never worked with watercolours on fabric before so even though I'd tried them on a piece of spare fabric from my piece, I still underestimated their tendency to spread so much. One of the main problems I had was if I tried to apply the watercolours to the fabric the water tension of the droplet would just stay on top of the fabric so I had to keep going over it as when it dried the colour would be incredibly pale.

The effect of the watercolor makes it look vintage, way to go!
