I've made something a bit different for me today; I've decorated two little embroidery hoops.  They can be hung up via some matching ribbon loped through the tightening screw at the top.

I've used a linen fabric in the hoop, and stitched my image paper to it.

The images are water-coloured in DI reinkers.

Although I didn't really want to part with them once I'd made them, I actually made them for my MIL (she loves turquoise), so I have reluctantly given them to her.  :0(

Card Recipe:
  • Image - PomPom and Daisy Chain from Lili of the Valley (retired)
  • Colouring - Distress Ink Reinkers
  • The Langton watercolour paper
  • Stazon Ink Pad
  • Ribbon
  • Embroidery hoops
I've been inspired by:
Happy crafting

These are so gorgeous hun, and such a pretty colour - very clever idea to use the hoops like that. I can see why you found it hard to part with them so I hope MIL was pleased to receive, I know I certainly would have been. Brilliant. Hugs xx

So gorgeous Annette and certainly a novel use of those embroidery hoops. Fabulous colouring too.

Stunning can see why you wanted to keep them they are so fabulous. A great idea as they look so pretty helped by the fact you have used two of my favorite LOTV stamps. Every time I see Pom pom I cannot believe they retired her Love and hugs Carole x

Aw these are gorgeous Net, what a great way to use the hoops. I need to make a new baby card for a friend but one of these would be a nice keepsake so I think I'll give it a try. Thank you for the inspiration. I love getting email updates from your blog!
