Imagine you are on a faraway tropical island, cold drink in hand, toes in the sand, staring out over the deep blue water and watching the glowing orange sun sink into the sea. This is exactly what this Stitchscape brings to mind and with the addition of gold metallic thread this piece is an eye catching one that will transport you there every time.
The hoop is finished on the back with a circle of white acrylic felt and a signed tag and is ready to hang on your wall, prop on your bookcase or display on a mini easel or plate stand.
The embroidery has been created using layers of pre-printed cotton fabrics which have then been embellished with intricate hand stitches to create a beautifully textured piece. The sun is highly textured with couched silk yarn and metallic threads catch the light in every direction.
There may be loose threads at the edges of this piece which have been intentionally left as part of the artist's appreciation of the nature of the fabrics.
The hoop size is a 15cm/6" embroidery hoop which has the following outer dimensions:
Outer Hoop 16.5cm wide by 17cm high (including the hoop's screw)
Hoop Depth 1.5cm
