Back here I showed you how to use Prismacolor pencils to colour in a stitchery design using one of my Rosedaisy Alphabet blocks.
As I was cleaning up my photo files on the computer last night I realised you'd never seen the finished block, and it really turned out so pretty that I thought I'd share the photos today.
It became a birthday gift for a dear friend, Vikki, affectionately known as my adopted little sis...
Don't you love that little porcelain bunny in the bottom corner of the photo? Vikki gave it to me as part of my own birthday gift from her when we met up in Melbourne earlier this year. It's one of my special treasures.
Back to that coloured block...
It was beautiful to stitch, but my big concern all the way through was whether or not the Prismacolor pencil would smudge as I embroidered the design outlines.
It did not leave a mark, and I don't use a hoop so my hands were all over the block throughout the stitching- the result was clean, and exactly as I'd hoped!
The 26 alphabet pattern set is still available here in my shop.
My tutorial for colouring the block is here.
Have you had a play with colouring a block before you stitch it yet?
Go on, it's fun!
