Presenting Poppy Poo!

I'm a couple of days late posting this and I'm sure you guys won't mind me hijacking the Random Afternoon Question spot to show off a finish, right? ;)

The Particulars:
Poppy by Mirabilia
Fabric: Dawn, 32ct hand-dyed opalescent lugana by Picture This Plus
Stitched 2 over 2
Floss: DMC, Kreinik
Beads: Mill Hill
Started: September 10th, 2012
Finished: October 8th, 2012



The grey blue floss for her wings blended in too much with the fabbie and looked too 'flat.' So I went over the top with a metallic white floss and that popped it right up. I think it gives her wings an almost ethereal, gauzy feel and I absolutely love it! :D






Couldn't resist taking this shot.
