To my mind what you are doing is the modern re-vamp of blackwork.  So I
suppose technically yes is the answer to your question.  Alot of modern
stitchers think that this is the only kind f blackwork.  I think the
Elizabethan version is the only true blackwork.  But to differentiate the
Elizabethan version was originally called Spanish work after Catherine of
Aragon who brought it to England and the modern stuff blackwork.  it avoids
confusion.
