I glued the petals where I wanted them and then thread painted them with a shiny crimson colored rayon. I love rayon thread!
|sweet! : )|
I added a touch of black free motion stitching for the stamens, balling them up at the tips. I did this in the dark, so excuse the crappy lighting. I outlined every petal with a rust-red just to help define the edges a little better. The last step was fusing on the back and then added the border stitching. Aren't they great!? I'm so proud of them... and I didn't even work from a photo this time.
I hope you enjoyed these random acts of stitching...
