quilt challenge-52 cards in a year

Week three

I wanted to explore the running stitch in this weeks challenge piece.  I chose to stitch a nikau palm which are found in our beautiful New Zealand bush. 

The background fabric is hand dyed and stamped with my own "eraser stamp.  I then embroidered the nikau palm on the middle of the card.  To finish with I used metallic paint sticks to give a shimmer to border of the art work.
