not standing still or another journey with thread

This journey has now taken me along the path of freehand machine embroidery. I have done some embroidery embellishing printed fabric and I have just completed a zippered purse with embroidery on raw silk fabric.
This one is a bit hard to let go but is now in my Etsy shop here.

more serviette paper art

The tulip serviette images have been trimmed, stuck, cut up and stuck down again. Working with three panels I trimmed different sections of each of the baskets and flowers then assembled them in layers.

All the yellow background went and I chose to work with the white and pink of the tulips for the card and highlight colour. The bottom section of the base card was airbrushed with Copic pen and I coloured a strip of gold craft sticker with the pink too for the boundary between the white and the pink surfaces.
