This is my finished piece for Sharon's Take it Further challenge. Sharon challenged us to either use a theme or a colour scheme and I chose the colours. I sprayed a piece of cream fabric and some stitching canvas with Adirondack Colour Wash in Eggplant. It's not colourfast but is fine for a piece like this. I wrapped a couple of chenille pipe cleaners with fancy threads and stitched some Norwich stitches on the canvas. This is one of my favourite canvaswork stitches because it's such a lovely texture and makes a real focal point. The light green stuff that looks a bit like a feather is hand dyed silk carrier waste that I bought from Stef Francis (see previous post). I stitched it down with fly stitch and some beads and then rolled 2 very small pieces up and secured them with a ring of beads. The backing fabric is stapled to a small artist's canvas with the canvas strip stapled over the top. I like doing pieces like this and am pleased with the result.
