It's called Kamal kadai-Indian Embroidery and I saw it on Deepa's Blog: http://deepashome.blogspot.com/2008/06/kamal-kadai-indian-embroidery.html
She has all kinds of interesting techniques and styles to learn and pull from.
I just love this technique. It is so simple to set up and creates such a lovely effect for the flowers and just really adds a 3-D quality to the work.
For the stem I used basic chain stitch. And the leaves is Roumanian stitch in 2 colors of floss, 2 strands light green 1 strand the same color green as the stem.
Aside from pulling the flower technique this was my own design. YAY!
But this made me giggle so I grabbed my camara.
