All About Threads

I introduced you to this stitch in one of the first #whimsicalwednesday posts to illustrate open stitches.  Today's stitch uses a different set of threads and the stitch pops in a completely new way.

The addition of multiple colorful accents, including Cross Stitches and Smyrna Crosses, turns this stitch into something quite spectacular.  The stitched sample uses Silk & Ivory, Frosty Rays, and Kreinik Metallics Medium Braid (#16). The heavier thread weights provide more coverage and more focus on the stitch than the shading underneath (unlike the original post).
