Brazilian Embroidery or Dimensional Embroidery

When I was surfing the net I came across Brazilian Embroidery and I was so attracted by the stitch.I was hunting for tutorials which later I obtained from Deepa.Thank u Deepa.
While working with Rayon thread,it is very interesting doing bullions,cast-on etc.,but due to shortage of thread I have used cone thread also.I didnot finish the project, anyway I am posting some flowers for your comments so that I can improve my skills.

Pairs of Deers in Long & Short

Monsoon season arrived. Sweaters and shawls started creeping out of the ward robes. To deviate a bit from floral designs I thought adding some fauna. With this in mind I tried Long& short stitch to shape up a pair of deers in a plain shawl. Here I used two strands of Anchor cotton thread. This has come up to my expectation. This I intend to gift it to my hubby. I developed my little knowledge in L&S by visiting Lakshmi's blog Thank you Lakshmi! How is it? Leave your comments and suggestions, which will motivate me further.
