The petals are embroidered

To fill the two petals I embroidered a row chained feather stitches in the center. As I wanted to fill the petals according their shape I took care that the stitches at the top are slightly wider than at the bottom.
 Stitch: chained feather stitch, you can find it here.
Thread: two strands of Madeira stranded silk 0812 med dusky rose.
