A Snowflake finale
Well, that didn't take too long--the Snowflake canvas is finished!
For the larger snowflakes rimming the ornament, I used Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #001L--the holographic silver--in tent stitches. I think it contrasts nicely with the dark blue background.
For the tiny snowflakes dotting the background, I worked single tent stitches with Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #032. I suppose some folks might have been tempted to use beads here, but I wanted a "flat" sparkle so as not to detract from the central figures.
One more design to go in the series based on The Nutcracker ballet--I'll be back!
