Triceratops Project - Part Four

 Since my last update to this project, I have made a bit of progress on some of the leaves of this big tree.  I outlined them with stem stitch.  To fill them, I am using lines of running stitch.  I really like the effect!

I outlined the volcano and added some red to the interior...not sure yet if I will also add some yellow and orange: 

Now for the lettering.  I wanted to stitch the word Triceratops in a bright, bold color.   I chose this orange -  DMC #741:

I am stitching the top of each letter with three strands of floss and using the stem stitch.

For inside the letters, I am using vertical lines of straight stitch with only one strand of floss:

I love the color palette on this project!  However, I am missing two floss color numbers.  The lightest green from the plants and the brown from the volcano...when I figure out those two numbers, I will add them to my list:

I love this! I think the different textures and stitches are amazing! They do so much for this project!

When I saw the leaves I thought, "how cool!". But then I saw the writing and it's even "cooler"!! LOL! I think this is a great project and you are doing such a fabulous job. Now I want to make some dinosaurs!!
