quilt challenge-52 cards in a year

Week 29

I have a great love of dragonflies.  I have no idea what fascinates me about them but when I draw insects it is always the first one I draw.  I think they are very pretty insects and their colours on their body's are just beautiful.  Today I have drawn a dragonfly based on Elizabethan embroidery designs from furnishings from that era. 

The dragonfly was drawn with prisma coloured pencils. (a beautiful pencil with a high pigment content) I thought I would try this one with no other painted colour.  I then went over the pencil with stitching.

I really liked the strong contrast between the white and the coloured stitching.
