Sea Blue

I have used this stitched piece as a background for a photo group competition on Flickr.
It was one of a series with 'blue' titles ie Lavender Blue. It is worked on a silk background and uses carrier rod silk strips which I painted and used Iridescent Tinting Medium to add some sparkle. The stitching is mainly Cretan Stitch, with some machining and seeding. Carrier rods are lovely to use and fairly cheap; you can turn them from something quite ugly into something fine and tactile.
