These have a few different techniques (so I'm not sure where it goes) but I thought I would put it here b/c embroidery was the final step.

I carved out 5 block stamps and stamped them in brown on white silk. Then I silk painted the background colour (which is the colour of the actual berry). And then finally I embroidered a few sections. This was pretty much my first time doing embroidery, I'm not disappointed with the way it turned out.

They were for my final project at school... I didn't have enough time to set them, so unfortunately I can't use them as scarves, unless I know for sure that I won't be sweating or they won't get wet in anyway... I don't need to have a pink and orange neck!
Haha, so I have yet another piece of art to hang on my wall!

They're great! Nice to use of your block prints and your stitching looks grand!
