Squeezing In

Unlike my usual habit of finishing a biscornu a few days before posting I finished this two weeks ago, and almost forgot to post it today.

This is Papillon Creation's Magic Carpet freebie.
I like it, but I still feel like the colours all bleed into each other too much. You can barely tell that there's orange and blue in the flowers.
The overlapping fly stitches were pretty fun.

Don't be negative - the subtle colours work really well together, especially on the black. It's gorgeous! :)

I love it and can definitely see both orange and blue in those flowers! It's a stunning biscornu.

Very pretty. On my monitor, the colors show up very well with plenty of contrast. I always envy anyone who can stitch on black!

Isn't the blending of the colors and flowers the magic of the design? It is beautiful, and Halloweenish with the orange and black.
