Fishing for Compliments...

...yes, I can hear the groaning, but it had to be done I'm afraid! ;)

This is my latest, a goldfish in vibrant zingy shades of oranges, reds and yellows with contrasting tones of purple and blues

I've hand embroidered the painting so it's choc full of bubbly bubbles interpersed with french knots and two wee koi carp to keep fishy company. I've also added a hook and line to catch all the lovely compliments!

Further embellished for extra glittery kitchyness with tiny glass beads,sparkly sequins and crystal chips... (see, I resisted the urge to go with fish n chips there!)

Thought you might like to see a bit of hot before and after action...

After...gone all embroidery on it's ass!
