Tiddly Inks – Fabby Friday

Sharing is caring!

Wild Thing 2

It’s Fabby Friday over at the Tiddly Inks challenge blog!  This week I have chosen King of the Wild Ones digital stamp (which you can find HERE).  It’s been a few weeks since I did some embroidery, and I was a bit twitchy … so, I thought, why not embroider a stamp?

Wild Thing 3

I have used a 15cm/6″ embroidery hoop, a 20cm square of grey homespun, and a 20cm square of thermolam.
The thermolam is under the homespun, and it really gives a lovely dimension to the embroidered design … a teeny bit of puff, pulling the stitching down into the fabric instead of floating on top.  I never embroider without it these days!
I created a 15cm square document in Photoshop, imported the stamp, and made sure it was the right size for the hoop.  I added text using the Men In Black credits font, and printed it out.
Next, I placed the fabric over the printed design, making sure it was centred, and traced it on with my frixion pen.  All that was left was to place the thermolam & homespun sandwich into the hoop, and start embroidering.  I’ve used Semco black embroidery thread, but I think I prefer the DMC black.  To remove the tracing lines, I’ll just hit it with the iron (very gently), and they will disappear!

Now … what should I do with this framed pretty?
