A 3D embroidered art piece created from a pre-printed image of a bird atop a birdhouse covered in flowers.
I chose to make the large flowers in a beautiful orange organza ribbon for the petals and I beaded the centres with black seed beads.
I used silk ribbon for the smaller flowers and used a beautiful glossy black silk thread to fill the centre with French knots and rounded this off with silk ribbon leaves.
The bird is in various shades of browns in a matt cotton thread.
I took the minimalist approach and highlighted the the bird house itself with a metallic thread.
This, like its matching piece, is one of a kind and I have signed and dated it.
Dimensions 47cm (19.5") x 40cm (16")
