Flaming orange heart



">Link

I'm about ready to spit the dummy over the way "Mr Blog"and Miz Picasa are hissy-fitting today!
This is my fourth attempt at posting and I'm feeling a tad irate over the time wasted in attempting re-posts.

Okay...the topic in question: Completed is one "flaming -orange heart" for ToniE.
Maybe a little more red than orange,this piece of dyed silk screamed out "Toni!!" when I rediscovered it nestling in my silk fabric stash.
Toni is a member of Chain of Hearts online group,and the Link should take you to hearts I've made for swapping within the group

Because the fabric itself has such strong vibes I have tried to not have the embellishments warring with the fabric.
Using a forest green "faux feathers" knitting yarn for foliage I worked orange and apricot silk ribbon for the flowers,a cluster of painted buttons and an art-doll molded face for extra texture.
The butterfly resting on the button was burnished with Lumiere Sunset gold.
(now to once again tempt fate with an upload)

Maureen, this heart really 'does it' for me - lurve those colours - not usually my thing at all but they are sooo vibrant - wonderful!
