PTI Blog Hop March 2011 . . . Embroidery Floss
Time again for another PTI blog hop! For this month the challenge was to use DMC floss in our creation. I was thinking about that song, "Tie a Yellow Ribbon" and thought why not tie a pink ribbon and make bows for breast cancer awareness? And the DMC floss is just the right size to make ribbons for this PTI tree stamp. I used a kaleidacolor pad for the leaves, Fresh Greens, I think the multiple greens give it added interest. And I used DMC floss 605 and 603, braiding them together for the ribbon around the trunk and using the individual colors in the leaves. Thanks for looking and happy hopping!
In memory of my grandmother and my SIL.
