I made a stamp using some 'funky foam' cut to shape and stuck to a piece of polystyrene.
Ist layer - I used some orange fabric paint to stamp on to a piece of yellow fabric.
2nd Layer - embellishing machine to attach a piece of crystal organza to the stamped fabric.
3rd Layer - machine stitched spirals using blue thread on the bobbin and yellow on top, sewing from the back to get whip stitch on the front.
I then couched various thickness of threads - machine made cords, knotted cords to the background.
