Simple but so sweet..

The SO sweet Carnation,
I love this flower and its my birth month flower :)
 I made these with white Ribbon and painted them,

No two flowers are the same, the fold of the ribbon making each flower unique in its own right and also painting them makes them different by adding light or dark shades wherever you want making the whole picture unique to the creator.

I love black backgrounds, I think it brings out the colours so much more than white,
I've used black many times in cross stitch and the results were always beautiful.

Happy Crafting


  1. Summer your creativity is so inspirational ♥

    Black background is a perfect choice for making carnations more apparent!

    As per the carnations, they are so very lovely!

    You did a great job- well done ♥

  6. They may be simple to you; but they don't look simple at all. They are wonderful and I love them against the black background. It does help to make them pop and take notice. I have looked back over your past blog post and I love all the things you create.

    King John 1595
    Therefore, to be possess'd with double pomp,
    To guard a title that was rich before,
    To gild refined gold, to paint the lily,
    To throw a perfume on the violet,
    To smooth the ice, or add another hue
    Unto the rainbow, or with taper-light
    To seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish,
    Is wasteful and ridiculous excess.

    As always dearest Summer I remain yours respectfully Ban :))))))

  8. Stunning! The black background is perfect! :)
