Fabric Painting

This particular design has been with me for years , actually its from an embroidery book . I feel that embroidery designs adapt quite well to fabric painting. I used yellow carbon paper to trace the design as black ones are very messy and also show too much on light colored fabrics.
I completed this in a few hours as light colored fabrics tend to get dirty with too much handling and sometimes the more effort I put, the worse it gets.
Fortunately there are no paint marks in the wrong places, fabric paint is very difficult to remove.
After 24 hours the fabric painting should be pressed on the wrong side to lock in colors.
