The design I'm going to show you is from a set of card designs that are suitable for sending for almost any occasion....very versatile! This one, as you can probably tell from the post title, is of an ice-cream cone. I'm not going to tell you what the greeting/title will be, that's going to be my secret until the big reveal!
So, I started of stitching using the colours that I had picked from the colour palette on the cross stitch program which looked fine on the computer screen, but when I started to stitch it, I had to make a few adjustments as sometimes the contrast is more pronounced on the computer screen than on the actual threads. Then I couldn't decide if I wanted the vanilla ice-cream to be white or more to the cream shade....after all, vanilla ice-cream comes in all shades depending on the manufacturer (trust me, I know my ice-cream!!) Anyway, I stitched it up in white but wasn't too happy about it.
I unpicked the white and went for a more cream colour. It looks a lot more lemon colour in the picture than in real life.
I thought this colour combination looked much better. Those of you with eagle eyes will also notice that I changed the shading on the pink ice-cream as I didn't think there was enough contrast.
And here's the ice-cream with the back stitching and the border.
Looking good enough to eat!
So, any ideas what the title will be? If anyone actually comments with the correct wording, I will send them the chart!
So I will leave you with thoughts of ice-cream and hope that you can resist the temptation to raid the freezer!
Until next time.....happy stitching!
