Winging it again
The only thing I wasn't crazy about in the Herald Angel design was the yellow with which the wings were painted. The yellow paint wasn't an intense hue, so covering it up wasn't a big problem.
The individual segments of the wing were first outlined with Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #002 in tent stitch. Each segment was then filled in with a satin stitch using four strands of white DMC cotton floss.
The white wings show up nicely against the navy Petite Very Velvet sky and will fit in much better with our decor.
