here is the detail on the gold work outlining the water at the bottom, I think I will not outline the lily with gold as well. it stands out well all on its own merits.
while i love how it turned out, split stitching the whole thing was a trial
I'm still not sure I like how the satin stitch came out on the cross run at the top I may have to pull some of that and do it differently.
If anyone has any suggestions there I would appreciate it!
I also found some excellent braid to outline the whole blazon with.
once I put that on the whole thing started looking more "official"
