embroidered and parchment cards

These are my latest cards, there is a mix of embroidered and parchment cards

The wreath is embroidered with satin stitch and French knots and the background I painted with water colours

I thought that I would have a try at redwork, this is something that I haven't done before. I was happy with how they turned out, they are a lot quicker to embroider, just trace the pattern and sew using straight stitch.

The next cards are parchment, coloured using pencils
