Silk Ribbon print with wire-edge ribbon

This silk-painted print was embellished with silk ribbon and wire-edge ribbon. The wire-edge ribbon was gathered on one edge of the 3" piece of ribbon. The ribbon was gathered and then tacked into place. Silk ribbon flowers were added and  seed beads stitched into the vase design for added dimension.

Silk painted print with silk ribbon

This is one of four silk painted panels embellished with silk ribbon.
The Gutta resist design features a small bowl of flowers. Once the silk paint had dried, I ironed a fusible interfacing to the back of the silk fabric. Using RibbonSmyth variegated 4mm silk ribbons, simple stitches were used for the flowers.
