Embroidered Art - Valentine by salvagedmutiny Embroidered Art - Valentine by salvagedmutiny
This piece was inspired by a mural I saw on my travels in Nassau, Bahamas. It made me think of old anatomical drawings by Da Vinci so I used this to inspire my colour scheme.

The whole piece was hand stitched by myself. The text is thread blended back stitch. The heart is satin stitch with a minute brick stitch for the ventricles and aortas. Torn, shredded satin hangs from the heart edge. The background is satin with crayon to add texture.

There is a string across the back of the piece making it ready to hang as soon as it arrive on your door step and the back is finished with felt.

Available in my Etsy Store here: [link]

A print of this piece is also available in my print store!
