Detached Chain Stitch - ATC


2 posts today!! Boy, I'm on a roll.... Detached chain stitch was the TAST challenge for last week. I had a background already cut out from a piece I had made on the embellisher, so thought I would make an ATC out of all detached chain stitches. I used mainly DMC threads of different thicknesses, and added some fine gold highlights throughout.

Can you please tell me what in the world is an embellisher? I see it mentioned on various blogs and I haven't a clue!
