Persian Floral ATC


I love paper piecing. The flower is done with ads in magazines from, what else, persian rugs! First I colored the background card with a bit of watercolor. Stamped the leaves on. Then I cut petal shapes at random from the rugs. The stem and leaves are also done from green rugs. The dragonflies are done from another set of basic looking rugs.

Oh, this is nice too. DH and I have several Persian carpets, and I've always thought I'd like to do some cards based on them. You beat me to it! LOL
