Select digitaly altered handmade ATC  print onto 8"x10" silk sheet, layered with white organza and black tulle then free motioned stitched.   Flower centers are made with peltex and a fancy fabric then beaded with bronze Toho beads.  Silver metallic cord is needlelaced onto the background, leaves, stems and vines are cotton pearl zigged zagged stitched down over appliqued organza.  Silk ribbon embroidered flower petals and silver 3mm metal beads  finish this piece.

Someone asked for a close up, I hope this works

Great.  Still intrigued with that needle lace.  Do you have any close ups of it on this piece?
