Ivory Angel - A gilded toe

With the background of the toe finished in Petite Very Velvet, I added all the vines using Vineyard Silk Classic Bark.

The sections of the canvas that had been painted white were then filled in with Kreinik #12 tapestry braid 002V.  I'd used this metallic to fill in the white areas on the angel's chair and liked the effect.  It adds some color and sparkle to the overall design without detracting from the angel herself.

  I'll be using this same approach on the arch above the angel whenever I finish this section of the stocking--I've been a Bottom Dweller for quite some time now!

You're moving right along. Adding the metallic is a nice touch.
