Gum leaves

Here I have stitched gum leaves to stained watercolour paper with hand dyed silk thread. The pink of the leaves did not show up too well, so I put some paper gold mesh behind the leaves and stitched that down also. I have a cool white shadow box to frame this picture in, the frame tones down the background paper and enhances the whole picture.
