Klimt in the garden with Rumi : August art card

Ready to share my next art card inspired by Effy's A Year of Rumi online class. These art cards present special challenges to me since they are only 5 3/4" square. Always start with gatherings - I know I'm going to use a candle to symbolise the light and I already have all my quotes printed in the same font
I love stenciling and am teaching a class in this next week - I'm also very inspired by turquoise at the moment and I think it will make a lovely night time suggestion without being too dark
Next I decided to add some pretty washi tape for more subtle background interest and trial positioning my candle and quote
Before I stitch anything down I check and see I've got Klimt covered with my patterned fabric and the gold (+ I always use metallic thread) but what am I going to have for my in the garden element? Having sorted that, the machine stitching with gold metallic thread begins
Once I've finished stitching down all my elements, I always find a suitable fabric to put over the back and machine stitch right around the edge. 
This is my completed card for August.

    1. Thanks Nancy - sometimes inspiration takes a while but it's worth the wait :-)
