The The Happy Spaniel Dog Tapestry Kit would also look lovely completed in DMC or Anchor 6 Stranded Embroidery Cotton. (not included in Kit)

Editors Note: For a more modern look, experiment with a combination of threads and textures. Variegated threads can add interest as can metallic, rayon or silk threads for that added sheen and sparkle.  Using matching colors in different mediums lets you introduce texture into your work.   Perhaps consider some textured stitches??

When I look at this picture, I think the Spaniel could  done in 8 strands of Stranded Cotton for a doggy silky sheen, and perhaps the plain background could be done in a patterned/textured stitch, say  Diagonal Mosaic stitch (see below for details).  This would add some extra interest to the piece and provide the more experienced stitcher with a bit more of a challenge.

To complete the look, we offer the following complete ranges:
