Stitched: Themes and Variations
Stitching on Rives BFK. Digitized in 6D Embroidery software. STabilized with medium weight cutaway stabilizer. Threads are rayon, polyester or cotton. There is a thin layer of batting between the stabilizer and the paper. Hand coloring with watercolor: bold pours; brush swooshes and staining from the back of the stitching with the rayon thread. The rayon wicked the watercolor to the front, containing it to the stitched area.
This one is my favorite. Stitched inoff white rayon, stained from the back with watercolor.
