Silk ribbon Thistle cards by fairyfrog Silk ribbon Thistle cards by fairyfrog
Silk ribbon embroidery, made for an exhibition I had in Scotland 2006.

One card and two brooches.

Hand-dyed 100% silk ribbons, a pattern I invented myself, inspired by the Scottish thistle.

Now that is cool. I love how you've done the globe-y bit of the thistle.

Thank you! Coming up with how to use that twist to get it globular was interesting. I only used that kind of stitch to make pine cones before. :)

My mom used to do things like this, with ribbon, so I know how much work they represent. They are amazing. CONGRATULATIONS.

Thank you so much. I enjoy how the ribbons get so petal-like. It is a wonderful method and dyeing the ribbons oneself gives so much variation in colour!

Definitely. The dyeing of the ribbons creates the changes in tones that truly reflect nature's perfect imperfection. Once again, you truly are skilled at this. You keep posting and I'll keep enjoying your art and commenting ;)
