Silver Guard Token

I embroidered a Silver Guard token, because those are so hard to get and Meisterinne Katheryn Hebenstreitz suggested that the tokens could be embroidered.

It became quite big (9x150cm), because I thought that it should be long enough to be tied on top of one's armor. I'll make them smaller, if I'll do any more of them.

Linen embroidered with black (split stitch for durability) and pale yellow (running stitch) cotton and fake silver (couching). The yellow is underneath the silver, in case the silver wears off. The ink that I used to transfer the picture on the fabrik bled a little and is visible specially around the ears. The grey spot on the bigger picture is not on the token, my camera just does that, old thing.

I'm satisfied that the dragon came out this pretty. Let's make it a little smaller next time though.
