More Under The Sea

The past couple of days, I've been working on another UTS block in the round robin series. And the work done before me is wonderful...let me show you. Here is a beautiful fish that Deloris created on her embroidery machine. She makes me want to go buy a new sewing/embroidery machine myself! Isn't her work just gorgeous!
Plus, on the other side of this rectangle block...Jacque has placed this stunning mermaid and stitching! And the little dimensional felted fish is so cute!
Well, it is certainly a little daunting to follow this pair of creative stitcher's! I went on the hunt through my stash for some pretty and textural fibers. I found a piece of dyed cheese cloth and these cute little flowers. They were white and I dry brushed them with some alcohol inks.
You know I had to add some feather stitch plants since there weren't much there yet! This time I decided to use some of the rayon I have from EdMar for my Brazilian Embroidery because the colors are so vibrant.
Beads and a family of fish...and I'm almost done! These brass fish are painted with fingernail polish. When completely dry, I used some color markers on them...and then rubbed most of that off with an alcohol wipe so only the color is in the "creases".
I'll show you the finished block in a couple of days as I'm stitching away!
