This is one of the petals for the Oriental Lily project. The silk petal has been tacked over the last felt padding piece. The blue marker will be erased with a bit of water. (HINT: I also scrapbook and one of the trends in this in the last few months has been watercolours. You can get this funky Japanese pens from art and scrapbook shops that have a fine brush nib with and attached water resevoir in the body of the pen. Its a great way to erase water soluable marker, because its a very fine point and therefore accurate, you don't have to soak the whole work to get rid of the pen).

The petals will be appliqued over the padding that is already attached to the ground fabric. This picture also gives a close up fo the stem stitch.
