I just did a google search for brushed embroidery and that one came up. Don't know why it was blocked though.

is brush embroidery done with buttercream?

if yes, then there's a video on youtube by SeriousCakes, try searching for her vids, she has one on that technique.

if indeed we are on the same wavelength here.

It was on the sugarcraft web site.... i noticed that the link i sent you was blocked too after it was posted

They used Royal icing to make the outer lining & then using a damp brush gently brushed it inwards, It also mentioned that if doing Stems then to leave them bold & to brush any leaves

I got a couple of weeks to try & perfect it till my mum in laws birthday so when the kids are not around i'll be giving it a try
