I thought I wanted to do a country framed art piece for my home.. and the Unity stamps were the perfect images for this piece.
Home Sweet Home
First I started with a piece of canvas cloth.. really I kind of stole a piece of it from my hubby's painting drop cloth.. I am sure he won't mind hehehe... Then I lightly traced the backing of my photo frame this way I knew where to stamp my image to fit every image in the frame size.. I just used a pen for this. Now stamping my images , using black ink from Unity I made my pattern.
Using all different embroidery threads, I hand stitched , stitching over the stamped image as my guideline.. The colours were bright and I wanted a dull , worn look . So using the tea bag technique. I boiled some water and added a tea bag.. letting it steep. I then took the tea bag and blotted the cloth.. rinsing it more that once.. and left it to dry overnight.. and this is the creation I was left with.. I really love how it all turned out and it only took me a couple of hours to stitch it all up.
I think with all the wonderful image you can make some cute designs and give them away for gifts for any occasion. The frame I got at Michael's Craft Store for only $1.50.. you can't go wrong there, I also used some of the Unity stamp coloured ink to distress it. I hope you give this a try.. it was a lot of fun and I can't wait to hang it up. I think I might be making some for presents this year. Better get me my own Canvas Drop Cloth!!
