I was asked to be the guest designer on Daisy Doodles. Once you are there, at the top you will see challenge blog, just click there. My pic should be on Monday's blog!
I was sent a digital image and a sketch to follow. here's the sketch:
There are three layers of leaves that I used to paper piece onto a scrap of green paper.
Here's a pic of all the copies I made to paper piece this rose set.
Cheryl was the sistah that got me 'hooked' on paper piecing and I will once more link you to her blog here.
I run the plain copy paper through the printer and then tape down the paper to the portion of the pic that I want to be that color. the yellow sheet was my back up plan and that's the paper that I used. the assortment of yellows and golds that I originally chose just didn't work for me. The printed green leaves had already been cut out when I realized that i should take pics.
I use a marker to color the portion of the leaves so the yellow doesn't show. then I glue the leaves over the yellow image.
Caardvarks. here's a pic of a side view, imagine all the layers...
This is a better pic where you can see the glitter, white on the flowers and green on the tips of the leaves. All the sparkle is for a challenge over at the Creative Cottage.
One more pic of the inside and we're almost done with this post.
I will eventually add some flowers to the inside once I decide who will be receiving this rosey card.
They're on page four
