As I mentioned in my previous post, I got to create for two of my EtsyDarkTeam mates. My second Birthday Swap gift was for IllustratedInk.
IllustratedInk is a fan of tattoo art and Dia de los Muertos items so I made her a 8" x 5.5" El Corazon patch. It was free-motion stitched on a Pfaff 230 with a little help from the embroidery functions on the arrow. I took my inspiration from the El Corazon card in the spanish game of Loteria.
It's done on black brocade with red, yellow & blue stitching and has a red satin ribbon border. It can either be framed ~or~ ironed onto almost any fabric item since I backed it with Wonder Under.
I'm still loving the popup bat idea so I made IllustratedInk a similar card. Again, the template for the popup bat came from here.
Too bad I have to wait until September to find out what I get! I'm sure it will be awesome.
