Finish For Friday Three

Today I am posting about another finished project in my series ' Finish For Friday' - I'm a little late but at least it's finished!

This is another book cover and this is a piece of white viscose felt which I coloured using 'Inktense' blocks - I just soaked the piece of felt and then rubbed the blocks on the surface of the damp felt. This was followed by some gentle rubbing to mix and 'meld' the colours until I was happy.

Stage two was white organza punched into the surface using the embellishing machine; some fancy knitting yarns were also added this way in a random effect.

Final stage - hand stitches - cross stitch; couching over the knitting yarns and cross stitches in selected areas in various shades of blues and greys, with highlights of subtle greens and vivid cerise pink.
