Ding! Dong! The witch is dead

Happy Spring to everyone,

I finished Wicked Witch by La~D~Da



I then attempted to make it old and dingy looking, going for a very primitive look


I am going to add some old buttons versus the little motifs in the bare spots
I pretty sure the linen was Havanna, I stitched the black with silk and the orange and purple in DMC. It sure looks different then the chart model

I use the Instant Antique, I have lots of stitchers tell me when you use it, it leaves little dots, they didn't like it. Here's a HINT..... Wet the linen with water, then spray on the desired amount, I then ironed it, till I get the effect I want, ta~da!!!!!!


Me thinks... this will be made into a bell pull

Happy Stitching!!!!

I like this! You have really made it your own with the personalisation. You're so brave though spraying it after you've put all that work in!

It turned out great, Ranae! I think it will make a wonderful bell pull.

Enjoy your weekend!

That's really cute - nice finish! I'd be singing that song from the Wizard of Oz the whole time I was stitching it LOL. Catching up your previous posts - what lovely projects you're working on - you are making good progress on your WIP list.

It looks just wonderful. I have never tried aging a piece. I think I'm a coward!
