I’m working on my second needle painting project, a rose and rosebud.
I chose a peach shadow play fabric for the background and decided to make blue and cream color roses.
I’m not done yet, but I wanted to show how just a couple little stitches in another shade can make a subtle difference.
I didn’t have enough green shades to do a couple of the leaves but i filled them in anyway. The leaves in question are the brightest ones which go from bright green to light green rather abruptly. This picture is before:
So, I visited the craft section of the local store and picked up a few new embroidery colors.
Ok. … a couple more than just a few. But they are all ones i didn’t have and they were a good price.
Using #471, I added some stitches between the bright and light on the leaves.
It’s subtle, but it’s less of a jump from the bright to light now.
A few stitches can make a difference. (I hope I’m not the only one to see the difference).
Hm. Should i give you a sneak peek at the rosebud?
That’s all you get until the rest of it is done!
