Today I'm sharing work by one of my current embroidery crushes. Rachel Welsby makes tattoo inspired embroidery art. Her themes include traditional-style tattoo imagery and more ecletic motifs such as crystal balls and esoteric symbols
Her work manages to be simple in design but still full of beautiful detail. It has definitely got me wanting to try stitching in white on black. Rachel is multi-skilled, not only is she handy with a needle and thread she is also a tattoo apprentice with some very cool designs for tattoos.
If you would like to check out more of Rachel's artwork- including her gorgeous tattoo flash please visit her on Instagram at @rachel.welsby (if you are quick you can catch a giveaway she has on!) and the pieces featured here are available on her Etsy
What are you stitching? Please share in the &Stitches Flickr group. We'd love to see it!
