Animal papers and last blackwork sample.

These animal papers were produced using Black brusho,which isn't very however much powder you mix, and card cut into points,blunt ended.scalloped and used on end.I actually like the way the colour fades in places and is stronger in others,I think it would be less interesting if it was all one tone.

To stitch this sample I started at the thin end with one strand of machine thread and added a new strand every new row until I got to ten strands in the needle and it was getting difficult to thread.It is a very small sample but illustrates the idea of using thickness of thread to increase tone.
