I made this card to try to get rid of my demons from the previous few weeks of one thing after another going wrong on me,
I kept saying,
"I'm going to scream,"
so here we are.
[Apologies to Munch]

This card is all made with thread, there is no fabric on it apart from the vilene base of course, I had to do the stitching at least one inch past the vilene, as it shrank quite a bit due to the massive amount of stitching on it, all those threads, down a few posts, were used on this card. Yes, it is a Postcard, 6" x 4". I loved doing it, I was so relaxed stitching away, rocking from side to side as I was doing it. I would take a guess at about 10 hours for the completion of it from start to finish, total. I have to say I am chuffed with the way it has turned out. On the wall it goes.

Oh Jan, I love it.
I have always been fond of Munch's Scream.
You have done a wonderful job.
Mr. Munch would be proud.
