spirelli window

Hi friends.  When I saw yesterday's technique challenge on SCS - to put some real stitching on your card, I knew I wanted to play along. 

I think spirelli is such a beautiful technique, that I decided to make a spirelli circle that was actually a window on the card front.  I was going to make it a single layer card, but then realized that the not so pretty back of the stitching would show on the inside of the card, so I made a separate layer, with an opening behind the spirelli to make a window card and the image on the inside of the card. 

It's not really blurry; the thread shadows just make it look that way.  Stamps are SU simply sketched, stamped in black stazon and colored with red and green markers. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.

This is beautiful. I haven't done this technique in a long time, but seeing your card makes me want to do it again. The coloring on the flower is lovely!
