Very nice indeed! I love all your choices regarding photo, various negative space stitches as well as various thread colors, your border fabrics - just everything! I would love to know where you used the Shiva sticks and the Inktense and also why you used both color mediums. Could you have gotten a similar effect by using only the Inktense? I have them already and don't want to have to buy more supplies. OH! And MUCH thanks for all the details photos ~ excellent and so helpful to see it up close. ***smiles***

i used the shiva sticks because i wanted the iridescence on the dragon flies i used the inktence on the rest of the background and it was an interesting combo and i like the result. thank you so much for the kind comments!
