I made this for curiousfae in the filled stitchery swap.  I don't embroidery much and thought this would be a good challenge.  This is the explosing Tardis scene from Doctor Who done in a Van Gogh-ish style.  I've painted this screen several times on coffee mugs and canvas.
Here is what it's supposed to look like: https://www.amazon.com/Doctor-Who-Exploding-Tardis-Poster/dp/B006BEC9HG
I embroidered just using a simple back stitch and used 6 strands at a time (just from pure laziness).  In some areas there are 3,4, 5 different color stitches on top of each other giving the piece a bit of a dimensional look.



And some close ups:

Woah, this absolutely rocks!  And I giggled at the lazy comment.  If this method is the lazy one, I'm basically a sloth.  It would take me years to even create this. SO amazing!  Thank you for sharing.

Very impressive stitching, especially on the pyrotechnics.  Great job!

That looks so wonderful! I think the 6 strands makes all the difference between good and GREAT!
