Winning the Lottery

Winning the Lottery

I'm having a lot of fun with this one. In the lungs-type shape there are dollar signs. The lotteria card is made of a felted in book cover with hand stitching. This one is still in progress, I am working on the lotteria card more and it will have some 3-D aspects to it. The upper part has a layer of gold sheer silk that has been stitched over to create little pockets of texture.

A large piece of plasticized cheesecloth was felted into the ground. Many hours of hand stitching remain to complete this one. I haven't done any embroidery or hand stitchery in a very long time. I am enjoying it immensely.
