New technique :: Embroidered paper

I saw this really interesting idea on Etsy's blog ages ago about embroidering postcards. As I've mentioned before on this blog I'm a sucker for Tiger stores and have a range of their patterned paper in my craft cupboard.

I picked a floral design that I felt would take to an embroidered overlay and picked out some crochet cotton in some complimentary shades and got stitching.

I used french knots for the centre and straight stitches working from the outside in to give a brick stitch effect.

And here's my finished piece of embroidered paper. I think it looks lovely and the embroidery really stands out from the print and lifts the design at the same time.
