I think I have posted other butterfly rose pictures!  I just love this rose bush in my yard and I take lots of photos of it.  This time I am using much larger pieces of fabric to make my picture.  I made the roses first and used a glue stick to keep them together.  I used gel pens for high and low lights, also, fabric markers.  Next, I chose the light and dark background fabric and then put the stems on it with glue sticks.  Next came the leaves and the final layer was sheers like organdy.  I covered it all with black tulle and quilted with invisible thread.  The image is 8x10 double matted to 11x14.  Check my blog www.debbiegeistweidt.blogspot.com.
