Bleached Poppies

I've been working on this hand-dyed fabric piece for a few days. The initial colour was thickened dye scraped on with a credit card. The red dye was scraped through a stencil of fern leaves. The black outlines were draw on in thickened dye using a fine-liner applicator bottle. Once batched, rinsed and dried I painted over the poppies with household beach to lighten them and make them stand out from the background. The fabric is freshly off the line after it's second washing to remove the bleach. Next I'll work into it with stitch.
