It started as a monoprint fabric. I put iron on interfacing on the back to support the stitching as it is cotton.
First came layers of painted cheesecloth, then the machine stitching with a leaf pattern. I hand stitched using Feather stitch. All of this was to create the feel of greening behind the flowers.
The flowers are Fly stitch, Chain stitch and woven stitches. The stems are Chain and stem stitch. The green seemed too prominent, so I whipped the chains with another green.
