12! by Magical525 12! by Magical525

Happy birthday DA!


Sources and inspiration:


:bulletorange: The DA llama badges
:bulletorange: The DA logo
:bulletorange: The DA 10 birthday badge that I changed to show a 12
:bulletorange: I was inspired the colour of Peridot (August's birthstone) when I made the "12" badge green.

I made the flapping cloaks of the super llama's different in an attempt to show that they were indeed flapping.

I mounted the embroidery on a pale pink card and gave it a slightly smaller blue glossy card border as the front of the card.

Sizes:


:bulletorange: Complete Embroidery: not quite 3 1/4" by a smidge over 4"
:bulletorange: Colours used overall: 84
:bulletorange: Complete card: 5 7/8" x 7 3/8"

Llama's :
:bulletyellow: 18 x 15 stitches each
:bulletyellow: Brown has 30 colours, albino has 32 colours
:bulletyellow: 7/8" x 1" each

"12" Birthday badge:
:bulletyellow: 17 x 26 stitches
:bulletyellow: 23 colours
:bulletyellow: 1" x a smidge over 1 3/8"

DA Logo:
:bulletyellow: 23 x 23 stitches
:bulletyellow: 2 colours
:bulletyellow: a smidge over 1 1/4 " square

"Happy Birthday" message:
:bulletyellow: 57 x 23 stitches
:bulletyellow: 1 colour (I just love variegated thread!)

Wow. This is amazing. I can't even imagine how long this took you, to not only come up with the patterns, but to stitch it out, and use so many colors!!

Thank you :)

It actually took "only" 6 days from concept to completion, which is slower than normal for me but the many colour changes really slowed me down.

Wow, that's fast. Cross stitch takes me forever to do. It is a lovely card, I wish you the best of luck in the contest.

I think everyone works at different speeds and I certainly have a lot of spare time to embroider in :)
