A stack of marbled fabric printed awhile ago kept calling me.  I blogged about the process here, and here too.  After many, many, and many more enjoyable evenings adding hand embroidery and bead's now finished.

This type of fabric can be challenging to work with.  It's beautiful on its own, yet very finding the right combination to 'incorporate' into the design....that doesn't compete with it requires patience....and perhaps 'unstitching' more than I'd like to admit!  (click photo to enlarge)

It's so lovely, like small rivers and a pond.

You certainly used that marbled fabric to its best effect. The purple agate is the perfect finishing touch.

Stunning! You chose the added stitching and embellishments well- it's just right.

You always know what to do with a piece of fabric. I never would have used this piece to embellish/embroider. I've been curious as to how you would finish since you first posted! A wonderful piece!!!
