More Inksplats

I managed to get the hand stitching finished on my other two Ink splat cards last night and machine stitched the edges this evening. I enjoyed messing around with cross stitch a lot yesterday afternoon so I carried on the theme on this card. By chance I had already machine stitched the swirls but this has turned out to be a 'Noughts and Crosses' card of sorts.
This second card is more abstract. I noticed that there was a big comet like swirl in the centre of the TimTex where the dye hadn't taken so well so I filled this with lots of machine stitching and then echoed the shape round the edge with a basic running stitch. I'm pleased with the way all three of these turned out and it was nice to make them all unique rather than do a set of all the same designs which I often do.
My walk of the day has also been this evening and in the dark so no picture to share from today. Instead I thought I'd stick on another taken of a church door on my meander around Cricklade yesterday.

Love the second postcard - lots of movement. You've spurred me on to try and find time for a daily walk :)

I really like the inksplat cards from your last couple of posts. The colours are really cheerful and it seems as though you've had a lot of fun with them.

The postcards are great!! Love the 2nd comet shaped one - the tail of the comet looks great.
