Then I tried just white in a few stitches directly nearest the red tail of the bird -
Then I tried that really bright dmc white - that B5200 - that is the nearly half star.
That one is better, but it almost reads like it was painted on - like painted on with a stencil? It does not look like floss stitched on fabric. Weird effect though.
So I thought of trying a gold - but on some weird conversion chart - gold turned to green dmc numbers - so that theory didn't help. I can pick random gold color floss, but they never stitch up like I am expecting. Never. Too dark, too yellow, too orange. Never golden, and a metal floss is too fussy. So I have a few more options. The red of the bird was supposed to be a different red, I can try that for the stars / snowflakes and text. I could try putting this all on a gray fabric - then the white might work... and I will have to un-stitch those whites...
