Warm Rich Punch Needle Colors...

Punch Needle Embroidery

Really like the warm, rich colors of these flowers...
the swirly fern frond, the 'beauty line' within the border 
and the rounded corners.
All giving this piece softness and movement.




I am punching the background using 
Valdani Perle Cotton, 'Cottage Smoke'.

I love how, with each row you punch, 
it layers in all that beautiful shading 
with absolutely no effort at all.




I outlined the flowers and then filled in 
the background, following the outline...




The background looks old, kind of vintage.

More to come as this project nears completion...
